In Level 2 and Advanced, students from all over the world with different language learning experiences join the classes of students who took Level 1 at UNCSA. Within the basic three-level framework, faculty have the autonomy to design curricula and instruction to meet the needs of their unique and diverse students and subject area.
The UNCSA High School Spanish instructor is responsible for designing their curriculum for four (4) sections of high school Spanish classes, Spanish 1, Spanish 2 (2 sections), and Advanced Spanish (level 3) for students in grades 9-12.
In addition to teaching their classes, the instructor will be available to students for individual help outside of class as needed, conduct placement testing for new students at the beginning of the year, attend faculty meetings, serve on faculty committees as appointed or elected, and fulfill other duties as assigned by the Dean of the High School Academic Program.

UNCSA opened in Winston-Salem in 1965 and became part of the University of North Carolina system in 1972. UNCSA includes approximately 1,300 students in its high school, college, and graduate programs.The UNCSA High School Academic Program provides unparalleled liberal arts training commensurate with the intensive conservatory training of our young artists. Our 17 full-time faculty teach approximately 250 young artists in grades 9-12 across the core disciplines of English, Mathematics, Modern Language, Science, and Social Studies. As such, we have a student-teacher classroom ratio of 14:1. Student-artists earn their diploma from the Academic Program, while also earning a certificate in one of four artistic disciplines: Dance, Drama, Music, or Visual Arts. We are the only public, residential arts conservatory in the country in which many high school students attend arts classes alongside their college counterparts, taught by the same internationally-renowned faculty. Our students then enter their respective arts profession or matriculate to the finest conservatories and universities in the world.
