World Languages

It is important to note that most public colleges and universities in South Carolina require two or more units of the same world language. Both Clemson University and the College of Charleston require three units of the same language.  In order to receive a South Carolina High School diploma, a student must complete either one credit of a foreign language or one credit of career and technology education. These courses are academic electives taught with rigor.
Dorman High School offers 3 of the most popular and useful world languages in our area:  Spanish, French, and German.  We offer both advanced and Honors level courses in each language.  In order to participate in honors-level courses, students must obtain a recommendation from their English teacher or language teacher.  Heritage speakers of Spanish who speak Spanish in their homes benefit from our two Spanish for the Heritage Speaker courses.
