Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation

 

Congratulations to MFIS!

This Year Milwaukee French Immersion is celebrating its 40th year.    To all of the families and teachers that have contributed to the last 40 years of success at MFIS, Thank you!  The French Immersion Foundation is working  to help build a stronger French immersion community to help MFIS and MSL build on what those who came before us started.  Here’s to growing over the next 40 years.

Founded to Support French Immersion

The Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation was founded by a small group of parents of students attending the Milwaukee French Immersion School and the Milwaukee School of Languages who recognized the gem we have in the city of Milwaukee of a public, urban, diverse school that outperforms schools in both the district and the state.French Students

Many of us parents fell in love with the French immersion program as soon as we walked through the doors. Seeing four year olds speaking with their teachers in French is something special. First impressions are one thing, but as parents we look deeper. How exciting it was to discover that in addition to French Immersion students becoming fluent in French, French Immersion students also excel in all other subject matter, consistently outperforming their counterparts in the State.

We parents recognize that the French Immersion program in Milwaukee is something special. Others have noticed as well. For example, after visiting the Milwaukee French Immersion School, the Minneapolis Public School system introduced a public, urban French immersion program based in part on the success of Milwaukee French Immersion School.

Unfortunately, we parents also recognize that we can’t sit back and rely on public funding to fund every aspect of this amazing program. As such, we founded the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation. The Foundation exists to ensure that the French Immersion program in Milwaukee Public Schools receives the support it needs for these children to thrive and to excel. Graduates of this program are amazing examples of what can be accomplished in an urban public school when teachers, parents and students collaborate to insist on excellence.

Join us in this important effort.
