Quality seal from French Ministry awarded to Valley View
Valley View Middle School has received LabelFrancÉducation, a quality seal granted by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to schools that offer students enhanced instruction in the French language while also teaching other subjects in French.
Valley View offers Extended French, a continuation of the French Immersion program at Normandale Elementary. Students in the program receive language arts and social studies instruction in French, allowing students to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking in French while covering the curriculum standards at each grade level.
587 schools from all over the world have received LabelFrancÉducation. The only other school in Minnesota to receive this seal is Normandale Elementary.
Launched in 2012, LabelFrancÉducation is granted by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs based on the advice of an inter-ministerial advisory committee composed of representatives from the French Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education, the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE), the French institute (IF) and Mission Laïque Française, a non-profit organization.
