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 for all of our students to speak and understand French by
grade 5. From there, they can continue 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.
