Bienvenue | Welcome!

Pierre Bottineau French Immersion is a tuition-free public elementary school located within the beautiful Jordan Park School in North Minneapolis. At Pierre Bottineau French Immersion, we believe that every student deserves and benefits from an exciting, balanced, and rigorous curriculum and that immersion education is a force for equitable learning opportunities and achievement for all.

During the 2013-2014 school year, we have full-immersion kindergarten through second grade and French-enriched third / fourth grade classes. We will add one grade each year until we are a K-5 school during the 2014-2015 school year.
