Ruppel Academie Francaise
Ruppel Academie Francaise is a selective-admissions French language school and offers an advanced curriculum for motivated students. Students attending Ruppel Academie Francaise experience the same curriculum as students who attend the district’s Advanced Study Academies (ASA), with the added benefit of daily classes in French. Ruppel is NOT a French Immersion school, meaning core content is still taught in English. Students receive French programming daily and the goal is for students to test proficient in High School French I and II by the end of eighth grade.
