Extended French

A teacher presents to students in a classroom.

The Extended French (EF) program at Valley View is offered as a continuation of the French Immersion Program at Normandale Elementary.

The EF curriculum has two classes at each grade level (French Language Arts and French Social Studies) where French is the standard language of communication.  Students in these classes engage in rich learning experiences to improve reading, writing, listening, and speaking in French, as well as to learn the Social Studies standards that are required at each grade level.

These classes are also taught by outstanding teachers that are native French speakers.  On top of this, each year Valley View welcomes three French interns who live with a host family for the year.  These interns collaborate with their respective teacher to help in classrooms, provide enrichment activities, and support students academically.
