French Immersion is a program which begins in Pre-K or Kindergarten at multiple school campuses across the parish.
Children are taught the core subjects in French, with the exception of English Language Arts. The immersion process begins as early as Pre-K , and continues through high school where students may qualify for a special endorsement on their diploma, the Seal of Biliteracy, which will demonstrate their superior language abilities to colleges, universities, and/or trade schools.
While in middle school, students take credit and placement exams which will allow them to continue studying upper-level French in high school if they choose to do so.
Transportation is provided for our Immersion students throughout the district, depending on bus and bus stop availability. If your family requires transportation assistance, please verify the availability of convenient satellite stops near you.

What Parents are Saying...
"My daughter Emma has been in the World Languages Immersion Pathway for 4 years now, and we have loved every aspect! Not only is she fluent in a language other than her native tongue, but the concept of this pathway has also taught her patience and strengthened her ability to use context clues and other problem solving techniques which will help her excel in life outside of the classroom."
