Foreign Language in Elementary Schools (FLES)

Kent Gardens is one of two schools within Fairfax County Public Schools to offer French as part of the Foreign Language in Elementary School (FLES) program. Students in Grades 1-6 receive FLES instruction for 30 minutes two times a week.

FLES is an approach to language learning that allows students to develop basic communicative skills in a language while reinforcing and enriching content in other disciplines.
