Feeder Elementary: Charlemagne French Immersion
High School Region: South Eugene
Program Description:The French immersion program at Roosevelt is a “school within a school.” Most students in the program attended Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School. Students entering the middle-level program who did not attend Charlemagne must demonstrate an appropriate command of the language.
Roosevelt’s immersion program requires students to study entirely in French for 40% of their day. For the remaining time, they join other Roosevelt students for classes taught in English. All students take a year-long block class called “Connexions” that combines studies such as language arts, science, history, grammar and social studies around year-long themes. “Decouvertes” and “French Writing with a Twist” classes are offered in French and cover natural science, art, social science and formal writing.
At the middle school level, alternative school students take courses with the at-large population of the host middle school along with classes in their specialized alternative program. Thus enrollment and state test results are counted with those of the host middle school. For more information, contact the school office.
