Studies show that children who have studied a foreign language in school achieve higher scores on standardized tests in reading, language arts, and mathematics.. Foreign language study has also been shown to enhance listening skills and memory and the development of second language skills can contribute a significant additional dimension to the concept of communication. Furthermore, students who have studied a foreign language develop greater cognitive skills in such areas as mental flexibility, creativity, divergent thinking and higher order thinking skills.
All students at Ogden International have the opportunity to learn more than one language. Ogden International offers two languages - Spanish (K-12) and French (7-12).
