Open Quote L'Etoile French Immersion School provides an extraordinarily strong elementary school (and preschool) experience for families who are fortunate enough to learn about the school and enroll their children. The school is perhaps northwest Oregon's best-kept secret in world-class education, and given its relative affordability is probably the best value in the area as well.

Our son is now in the middle of his sixth and final year at the school, having started in Kindergarten (Grande Section) in 2011. He has been happy at L'Etoile throughout his time at the school, and we couldn't be more proud of his academic achievements and the young person he is becoming. We credit much of our son's personal growth to L'Etoile's excellent instruction and the positive influence of the school community. L'Etoile is a special place -- warm and caring, yet rigorous and intellectually demanding –- and our son has thrived in this environment. He is a proficient reader, writer, and speaker of both English and French (working well above grade level in both languages), and has solid foundational skills in science, math, literature, history, social studies, music, art, and physical education. The school is accredited by France's Ministry of Education, and follows the well-rounded French curriculum in a full-immersion setting, using French as the primary language of instruction, but including some regular, focused instruction in English.

I encourage you to investigate L'Etoile for yourself if you are seeking a school with small class sizes a welcoming, caring community that draws families from around the world experienced, dedicated, attentive teachers and staff thoughtful, clear-sighted leadership focused steadfastly on the school's core academic mission after-school care and enrichment offerings ranging from sports to computer programming and a full, rich curriculum that fosters critical thinking and imparts a global perspective on humanity's diverse cultural traditions. You will be pleased with what you find at L'Etoile. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had an opportunity to participate in this remarkable school community. Letting others know about it is the least that we can do to say "Thank you". Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
