French Dual Language Immersion Program

Apply onlineStudents in the elementary French dual language immersion program spend 90% of their day learning in French and 10% learning in English starting in kindergarten. The percentage of English increases annually until 50% of the day is taught in French and 50% in English by 5th grade. Students learn to speak, read, and write in French through content, not as a separate course of study.

  • High school French world language is offered as an elective at Crescenta Valley and Hoover High Schools
