Welcome Message

Baton Rouge Foreign Language Academic Immersion Magnet (BR FLAIM or FLAIM) elementary school is Baton Rouge’s only public elementary foreign language immersion school for grades K-5. Academic immersion is a teaching method where the teacher speaks in the target language to teach students the academic material and a second language at the same time. FLAIM students are taught math, science, art and social studies by native French, Spanish or Mandarin speaking teachers.  FLAIM has two campuses. FLAIM I (Mayflower Campus) offers Spanish and French immersion, and FLAIM II (Polk Campus) offers Spanish and Mandarin. FLAIM is also an academic magnet. This means that our students are required to keep a GPA of 2.5 or higher. We set high expectations for every student. Our teachers use the same Common Core State Standards as the rest of the state/district public schools, but they accelerate the curriculum so that the students are consistently challenged.
