PRLog - Dec. 19, 2012 - NORCROSS, Ga. -- Peachtree Corners, Georgia – James Madison High School (www.jmhs.com), a leading provider of accredited online high school diploma courses, is now making its online high school Spanish courses available to those seeking credit recovery options as well as non-high school students interested in the career benefits of learning a foreign language.

Beyond basic communication, research suggests there are many other benefits to learning a second language that directly translates to the workplace, including better reading abilities, improved memory skills, and greater problem-solving skills. An article from CareerBuilder.com confirmed that in nearly every field and profession, from financial services to sales, there is a growing need to multi-lingual candidates.

Offered as single courses, students choose from Spanish I, II or III. Aside from adult learners wanting to take a foreign language, traditional high school students enroll in online schools like James Madison (http://www.jmhs.com/) for a number of reasons.

“There are many advantages to taking online Spanish language high school courses,” said Dr. Leslie Gargiulo, James Madison High School’s Chief Academic Officer. “Students can make up required credits without attending summer school, enhance their education while managing family or work obligations, even take classes that might not be offered at their primary high school.”

According to the Center for Public Education, credit recovery programs allow struggling students to work at their own pace, appealing to the 43% of dropouts who believe they missed too many days and could not catch up, or the 35% who say that “failing in school” was a major factor for dropping out. JMHS single courses allow current high school students or high school drop-outs the opportunity to gain credit toward completing a high school diploma program.

James Madison online high school diploma courses follow one of two academic tracks – general or college prep and for those wanting to complete their diploma program with James Madison, it accepts transfer credits from previous high schools. The regionally and nationally accredited school is one of the first to be 100% compliant with The Common Core State Standards -- well in advance of the 2014 implementation deadline.
