Milwaukee French Immersion is recognized as a high achieving public school and “exceeds expectations” on the DPI State Report Card. English-speaking students are taught French in an environment where French is the primary language of instruction. Students learn to read and write in both French and English. MFIS has been honored as a School of Distinction for successfully implementing PBIS. 5th grade students participate in a capstone experience where they are immersed in French culture and language for one week at Concordia Language Villages. New students accepted in K4, K5, and 1st grade only. MFIS is proud to have a diverse, inclusive community, welcoming families from all around the city of Milwaukee, as well as suburban families.
The benefits of second language immersion education are well established. Researchers confirm that students who are fluent in several languages develop cognitive and analytical skills that are more advanced than their monolingualpeers. Second language immersion education also promotes adaptability, flexibility and creativity, as children are expected to toggle between multiple languages according to environment.
French is the most frequently learned second language in the world, after English. French is spoken on every continent and there are 220 million speakers worldwide. Our school provides an opportunity to give your child a global education to prepare them for today’s global economy. Having proficiency in a second language can open the doors down the road to greater opportunities in education, business, and travel.
