About Hamlin’s K-8 Spanish Program and Department
The Hamlin School’s Spanish program prepares students to be empathic leaders in a multicultural, global world. Equipped with the foundational knowledge and skills of the Spanish language, students learn to build connections and community through authentic communication. By celebrating the diversity of the Spanish-speaking world, and combating bias and stereotypes, students come to appreciate the importance of multiple perspectives and become agents for peace.
