Feeder Elementary: Charlemagne at Fox Hollow
High School Region: South Eugene
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 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 covering natural science, art, social science and formal writing.
