Department Overview

Welcome to the Puyallup High School World Languages Department.  Your PHS World Languages teachers are committed to assisting all Vikings to acquire the ability to communicate in another language.  On whatever "Career Pathway" a Viking travels, the ability to communicate in another language offers decided advantages.


Language opens up many avenues for our Vikings' futures.  For many, studying one of the languages offered at PHS is, effectively, a requirement for admission to a college or university.  Most schools require a minimum of two years of langauge study; some, notably the most prestigious, expect that a serious applicant will have three or more years of study of another language and will have taken and passed an Advanced Placement (AP) Test.
