Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies School (FLICS)
The Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies School (FLICS), a K-8 program, is one of the only public immersion programs in the state, offering partial-immersion programs in French, Spanish, Japanese, or Chinese. The FLICS language program is a K-12 language program in one of the above four languages, with seamless continuation at the high school level. This makes the FLICS language program one of the only K-12 language continua in four languages in the country. Our focus is the foreign, or global, languages staffed with highly trained teachers from all corners of the world.
Parents choose FLICS because they want their child to be prepared for a rigorous, college-preparatory high school, to be successful in college, and to be equipped to compete in today’s global society. Through rigorous instruction and cultural immersion, FLICS is a child’s head start to becoming a global citizen.
FLICS students who complete the nine year language program (K-8), will understand and appreciate cultural diversity, and demonstrate a high level of proficiency in the use of technology, mathematical reasoning, in addition to reading, writing, speaking English, and in a second language. The FLICS student is equipped to succeed in our global society.
The mission of the Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies School (FLICS) is to create a safe, healthy, and engaging learning environment for all students and staff; to develop global citizens proficient and literate in a second language, as well as in English, Mathematics, and Science. In addition, students will develop critical thinking skills and creativity using modern technology, embracing cultural diversity, and in life-long learning skills.
We believe that the global student citizen is produced by the combined efforts of home, staff, administration, and community. We further believe that all students are responsible for personal and peer growth in academics throughout their educational journey.
