There are many reason why you should consider FLAIM for your child. If you haven't read about the benefits of language immersion, see here. For information on the East Baton Rouge Parish (EBR) Magnet Program see here.
At FLAIM, our students receive 100% of their math, social studies and science instruction in French, Mandarin or Spanish. Due to this, FLAIM only accepts students without an immersion background in kindergarten and first grade. In grades 2-5, students may apply if they have an immersion background. Applicants for grades 2-5 must be on-level in the foreign language as determined by a grade appropriate foreign language screener.
Students also receive 90-120 minutes a day of English Language Arts instruction taught by a native English speaker.
