Baton Rouge FLAIM has been nominated for the National Blue Ribbon School Award due to high performance this year. It is a huge accomplishment to be nominated, and it will be a huge honor if we are awarded. FLAIM will be the 6th public elementary school in Baton Rouge history to receive this prestigious honor. We will also have the distinction of being the first foreign language immersion school in the state of Louisiana to receive National Blue Ribbon status.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U.S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools. The National Blue Ribbon School flag is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
