What Alumni are Saying...
"French Immersion is a program that shaped my life. I was enrolled the year it began and my classmates and I quickly became family. Not only were we taught in a wonderful new language, but we learned about our French heritage and connected organically with our culture. I always knew there was something special about us and the way that we were educated. We had an advantage, given our young age, to absorb as much of the language as possible. Due to this advanced learning program, our scholastic achievements often surpassed those of our non-Immersion classmates throughout our academic careers. We were also able to forge a bond of lifetime friendship with those whom we shared this unique experience."

Mandarin Chinese Immersion
Communicate with the World!
In the Mandarin Chinese pathway, students' education is integrated with a foreign language. This early development has been proven as the easiest way to learn a language. Students are taught their core subjects - with the exception of English - in their second language. Immersion begins in Kindergarten, and this pathway, our youngest, is currently growing each year to offer a full program.
Students starting in Kindergarten may apply for the Schools of Choice lottery for Chinese Immersion. Students with previous language experience may be admitted in later grades. Contact Schools of Choice for more information.
Chinese Immersion 5th grade students will apply for Middle School Immersion at Paul Breaux Middle.
