|Tools for this tag|
For example, a typical secondary school in an English-speaking region will probably use English as language to teach subjects as mathematics, geography, history, ... The administration will probably speak English too, thus using school:language=en is appropriate. This school might also teach French as a course. This doesn't change the tagging, even if the french teacher speaks only French in their class.
If the school is truly bilingual or multilingual, semicolon-separated values can be used.
This tag is especially relevant in regions where multiple languages are spoken. In region where only a single language is spoken, one can assume that the language of the school is the language of the region.
This tag has not gone through a formal tagging process, but has been in use since 2020 and has worldwide adoption, especially in Toronto and northern-Africa.
- language=*, a more broadly applicable key that can also indicate the medium of instruction
