Arabic is one of the seven main languages spoken by SFUSD families and is a world language offering at Redding Elementary School, Marina Middle School, and Mission High School. At Redding, students can learn Arabic language and culture up to five days a week as part of cultural enrichment.
Teacher Summer Aqrabawr (Miss Summer) says she hopes her students will find possible professional opportunities in the future. She also enjoys teaching the diverse community of students at Redding. "I was born in the United States, but raised in Jordan, so we didn't have a community like this there," she said.
