World Language

Foote students build their familiarity with other cultures as they begin learning modern languages in kindergarten. Students explore Spanish and Chinese in their first three years, then choose one of the two languages to study as they enter third grade. Most of the emphasis in early grades is on the sounds and rhythms of language, building a foundation that helps students build auditory and literacy skills across the curriculum.

Computer coding is an interactive, hands-on pursuit at Foote. For a third grade STEM project, students design robots using LEGOs and program their movements using click-and-drag Scratch coding.
