Don't Phase Out Latin
- Latin Students
- Castilleja School
Latin has been part of Castilleja's educational foundation since the beginning in 1907. It seems unfair that after middle school and upper school students alike have put much time and effort into this cause that it is being phased out.
Eighth graders will never be able to reach an AP level, sixth graders cannot fill their requirement. But Latin is more than just looking good on college applications, it is the highlight of our day, it is the love of learning, it is the JCL competitions, it is Magister Klopacz.
We, the Latin students of Castilleja, call on the Castilleja administration to reconsider phasing out Latin, or at the very least extend the phasing out period to four years so that everyone can fill their requirements.
The Don't Phase Out Latin petition to Latin Students was written by Annie and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
