An obligation of U.S. high schools is to give students a strong foundation in English. They also should provide introduction at the very least to one foreign language. Bound by tradition, those often found are Spanish and French.
Iola High offers both Romance languages. Humboldt, Yates Center and Marmaton Valley offer Spanish.
Students would be wise to take advantage of such opportunities, and those who matriculate on to college should be careful to find time in their studies to hone at least a rudimentary knowledge of a second language.
