World Languages

On June 12, 2012, the State Board of Education adopted Ohio's New Learning Standards for K-12 World Languages.  The standards are comprised of a set of three independent standards documents which are aligned with Ohio's primary world language program articulations:

Kindergarten through 12th grade

6th through 12th grades; and

9th through 12th grades.



Marietta City Schools offers both Spanish and Chinese courses. 


Chinese 1 is offered at Marietta Middle School and Marietta High School.

Chinese 2 is offered at Marietta High School.  The classes use the workbook, "Learn Chinese with Me," series published by People's Education Press. 

Chinese 3 will be added for the 2014-2015 school year. 


We are fortunate to be involved in the visiting Chinese Teacher Program which assists the district with the selection of a teacher.  


Spanish 1- 4 is offered at Marietta High School.  Dual enrollment courses are offered through Washington State Community college.  The classes use Realidades 2014 textbooks and online materials by Pearson.
