I feel that FLICS is an exceptional school, but with any learning experience for children parents have to do their part. Children learn from their environment first, meaning teach your kids the fundamentals at home. How to play fair, respect the rights of others, how to respect those in authority, pay attention, and accept challenges. Teachers have their part as educators, but parents know first hand if their child is prepare for a immersion study program. Foreign teachers have different cultures, and teaching techniques, than American educators. FLICS is a challenge, just as any others tool for learning. Work with you child, and teach, and appreciate the opportunity.
I went to this school K-3, and I really enjoyed this school. It had a great idea but it just didn't have the funding, at least when I went there, to properly excute the goals that they set. I want my children to go to a school just like this one. I feel that this school did wonders for me as a child cause it allowed me to not believe that English is the only language to know, it allowed me to be more culturally open and diverse.
My children attended from K-2nd. Kindergarden and 1st grades were good; 2nd grade has been horrible. Good Theory, poor practice. I feel this year was a waste to my children and fear they lack in a lot of areas.
I have a child that has been going to this school since the kindergarten, she is in the Spanish curriculum. I really like the fact that the curriculum has foreign language, that is four different languages, Spanish, French, Japanese and Chinese. I also like the fact that the teachers are from the native countries. I also like the fact that the principal is allowing the children to be individuals. I am proud to be a parent of a student that has more than one language learned.
I have one child in Japanese, one in Spanish and a neice and nephew in the French program. The school also offers chinese. The children are taught in the language solely most of the day. My sons are practically fluent. This school is one of the best kept secrets of the Detroit public School system. Parents say they want to prepare there children for a gobal economy and a world of diversity. What better way to do so? My children are nearly fluent in a language at 6 and 7 years old and are taught the culture as well! This school is excellent!
