Foreign Language FAQ

Q.   If I take Spanish 1 & 2 at Adams, do I have to take Spanish 3 to meet the college eligibility requirement for foreign language with Spanish at the high school?
A.   Yes.  RUHS does not place any middle school classes on your high school transcript.  Colleges will have no way of knowing you completed Spanish 1 & 2 if they do not see it on your high school transcript.
Q.   If I take Spanish 1 & 2 at Adams and I take Spanish 3 at RUHS, do I have to take Spanish 4 to complete the 2 year foreign language requirement for college eligibility?
A.   No.  Once you complete Spanish 3 with a C or better, it will go on your RUHS transcript and colleges will be able to see you met the foreign language requirement.  Even though you only took one year of language at the high school, colleges acknowledge you have to have understood the first two years so they recognize the level you get to; however, we recommend taking 4 years of a language if you would like to be competitive in your college applications. ** Any higher level language class enrollment is determined by grade in previous level and teacher recommendation. 
Q.   Do I receive high school credit toward graduation for Spanish 1 and 2 at Adams?
No.  Middle school classes do not earn credits toward graduation even though it is a high school level course.   If you reach Spanish 3 in the 9th grade, you will only earn 10 credits toward graduation since you only completed one year of a language course at RUHS.
