Introduction

Lowell High School offers eight languages: Chinese, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, and Spanish.  A student may pursue a given language for three years, and with sufficient enrollment, a fourth year language may be offered. Lowell has an Honors program in Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. An Advanced Placement Program is offered in Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Latin and Spanish (These classes are only available if there is enough enrollment).

     We are the only high school in the San Francisco Unified School District that has a comprehensive language/computer laboratory. Besides providing important practice opportunities for AP students, It is available to all classes throughout the day where students can practice compositional skills in the target language.

     The highlight of the World Languages Department, the annual Kermesse Festival, is one of the largest events staged at Lowell that promotes and celebrates the multicultural heritage of our students.  Organized entirely by students and language teachers, the Kermesse Festival also raises money for the language laboratory. In addition, many of our students are members of extra-curricular clubs that promote cultural awareness and understanding in our global society. Club members also perform service projects for the school and community.
