French Immersion

 FI Grade Eligible

The French Immersion Program is a full immersion model where all academic subjects are taught in the French language from Kindergarten through the 8th grade.

French-speaking teachers immerse students totally in French as they learn the Prince George’s County Public Schools curriculum in mathematics, science, social studies, and Language Arts. English Reading/Language Arts instruction begins in 2nd grade.

The high school program continuation is at Central High School. Because French Immersion students meet the prerequisites, all are encouraged to apply to the International Baccalaureate Program as they matriculate to high school.
