The A-rated Audubon Charter School will open a new school, Audubon Gentilly, in Fall 2018 at the former Gentilly Terrace Elementary Campus. Audubon Gentilly will combine the current Audubon Charter School’s Montessori and French immersion curricula into a new Montessori French Immersion model.
Audubon Gentilly will host a Recruitment Day on Saturday, November 18 from 11am-3pm at Milne Park, 2400 Filmore Ave. The day will feature family friendly activities, food, and the opportunity to experience a Montessori French Language classroom activity through live demonstrations.
Audubon Gentilly will add one grade level per year until reaching maximum capacity by 2025 with students in grades Pre-K(3) – 8. The Montessori French Language Immersion Model will be the only program of its kind in the State of Louisiana. Students will receive instruction from both a Montessori Lead Teacher and a French speaking Co-Teacher with materials in both English and French.
Audubon’s existing French School is fully accredited through the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) and is also designated by the Louisiana State Department of Education as a Certified World Languages Site. The Montessori program is an Associate Member of the American Montessori Society, and is the only public Montessori program in New Orleans that extends beyond the Kindergarten level.
