My daughter is in K5 at Milwaukee French Immersion School (MFIS) this year and is speaking (and singing) so much French which is especially impressive since we don't speak any French at home. She understood everything her K4 teacher was saying by the end of November her first year. The teachers at MFIS are very passionate, caring and excellent at teaching. We utilize the before and after school camp which is located onsite since my husband and I both work full time. I have friends who send their kids to private French Immersion Schools in Chicago and NYC and pay $15K-$25K a year per child. MFIS is free. The test scores of MFIS students in 4th and 5th grade are much higher than most other state (and district) schools. Another added bonus - in 5th Grade the students go to France for 2-1/2 weeks and live with a host family. We couldn't be happier with the education our daughter is receiving at MFIS!
this is such an awesome school..... my daughter loves going to school learning i must say i would not trade this for anything the teachers are great and the principal is always helping out with the kids
Milwaukee French Immersion School has a strong teacher and family base community. the principal has strong leadership and hands-on abilities.
My daughter is currently in 4K at MFIS and she loves going to school and learning French. I went to this school when I was in school and am so glad that she is receiving the same high quality education that I did when I was a kid.
I have two children that attend MFIS. My kids love the school and are very happy with both the level of parental involvement and the dedication of the teachers. My first grader is already beginning to speak and read French. I love the location and the ability to participate in school events.
My daughter became fluent in a foreign language while aquiring a world view and great academic skills. She was able to visit France and communicate with the French family and their community members when she was 10 years old. This has shaped her world view.
I too love MFIS I'm so glad it came to the north side of town the atmosphere is wonderful, all the teachers are nice, I feel like all the parents are involved with their children's education. I can't rave enough!
I love MFIS, and think that sending my son there is one of the best things I could have done to jumpstart a life of enjoyment in learning. Small classroom sizes, strong parent-teacher relationships and the amount of time that the teachers put into each of the children as individuals is wonderful. I highly recommend the program at MFIS.
This is a great school! My daughter started in k4 and is now in 2nd grade at the Lycee Francais de Chicago. She was able to jump right in with kids from several diffrent French speaking countries and hold her own. I give alot of credit to the increddible teachers and staff of MFIS. Merci beaucoup MFIS
I have two children at Milwaukee French Immersion and have been so lucky to have found this school. The staff really cares about children and their families. I am also amazed at how well my children speak and read French. I cannot wait for them to take the 5th grade trip to France.
Our son loves Milwaukee French Immersion, We as parents also love it, beacuse the teachers are Great! and learning another language, especially a difficult one is made fun for the kids.
I cannot say enough about this school! A friend who attended the school many years ago (He's now 28) recommended the program to me. The teachers really have a passion for what they do and the children can feel it. This is one of the most diverse schools in the area and far surpasses my expectations. My daughter loves going to school every day. This is her second year and I can't imagine sending her anywhere else. I definitely recommend it to any parent who values diversity and wants to broaden their child's future opportunities. The school is now located at 2360 N 52nd Street so it's easily assessible no matter where you live in the city.
I have 2 children in the Milw. French program and couldn't be more pleased with their academic progress or the program itself. I have third child entering K4 in Fall of 2005 and already she's geared up and ready to go to school with her brothers and is already speaking some French. The leadership and quality of teaching staff at French Immersion are second to none. They are direct, fair and caring which are qualities that aren't easy to come by in today's society.
This is a terrific program! Our son started in K4 and is now entering 4th grade. He has become very fluent in French but also reads in English way above his grade level. The language training was very important to us, as we wanted our son to have a more 'global perspective' than most American kids. MFIS has a 'small school' feel to it, where the staff know all the children, making both them and the parents feel more comfortable. We're really looking forward to the 2004-05 school year, when the program relocates to a new school site (52nd and North Ave.) which will make it far more accesible for parents throughout the city.
I am so glad that my child attends this school, They have a great staff and my son just loves school.
