Since we are a full French immersion school, all subjects in grades 2–8 are taught completely in French. Therefore, students attending grades 2–8 are expected to be fluent in French. If you have questions about applying for 2nd–8th grade, please contact Diane Balagna, 816-888-7400. If we have more applicants than we have seats available, a lottery will be held on the same day as the K-1 lottery. Selected applicants will be notified the next day.
