Normandale, a French Immersion School in Minnesota

I visited an impressive French immersion school in Minnesota: Normandale elementary school in Edina.

Normandale is a K–5 French immersion elementary school with more than 600 students. Normandale follows the same curriculum as that of the other elementary schools in Edina. However, all curricular content is in French and English. Finding my way around the school was easy as all signs were in French: in the classrooms, in the hallways, and even in the cafeteria!

In Minnesota alone, there are some 50 elementary and secondary programs in which students are learning content curriculum within an immersion setting, placing the state in the top 5 in the nation for immersion education!
