It has been said that a second language is one of the best gifts a parent can give a child. L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion (LNFI) is the only French immersion school in St. Paul. Our goal is to have all of our students speak and understand French by grade 5. From there, they can continue their French studies through middle and high school. Our elementary program is so popular that we now have two campuses. At LNFI we know it takes a village; that's why our parent community is highly involved in everything we do. With many native French speakers on staff, we offer remarkable learning opportunities to our students.
