Our Mission & Vision

French Immersion Preschool & Classes for All

Mes Amis French School was founded in 2005 by Rose Mingo-Holtz, a passionate francophone from Haiti with a deep love for people and different cultures. As a young child, Rose dreamed of becoming a French teacher, and today she is committed to helping each child realize their full potential in learning the language. At Mes Amis, we take pride in the diversity of our students, who come from different age groups, genders, races, nationalities, and backgrounds, and in the friendships that are formed in our fun, friendly, and safe environment. Our dedicated teachers are driven by the joy of seeing their students’ language journeys, from starting with just a few words to using many words and sentences in French.

We believe that the gift of language is a precious one, and our mission is to help students of all ages speak and understand the French language and Francophone cultures.
We warmly welcome students from all walks of life to join us on this journey of discovery and learning at our French immersion school.

“We are so fortunate to have found Mes Amis. Madame Rose and the other teachers had a profound impact on our daughter both academically and emotionally. She can’t wait to come again in the summer. Great job to everyone at Mes Amis!”

– Sarah L.

“Our family spent several years abroad in a French speaking country. When we returned 6 years ago I searched for a place where my kids could continue their French. I found Mes Amis French School and all 4 of my kids have been involved in preschool, summer camp, and after school program. It is really a blessing, being able to speak a second language from a young age is a gift.”

– Margie M.

“The teachers are the best. My kid loves being there and always has fun while learning. Best program available in the cities.”

– Steph M.

“Our daughter has been attending Mes Amis French School for almost a year now. The progress that she made during that time is incredible. The staff is so friendly and our daughter is so excited to go every day. I could not recommend this place enough for a preschool. The peace of mind of knowing that your child is with people you can trust is priceless.”

– Guillaume D.

“The teachers are the best. My kid loves being there and always has fun while learning. Best program available in the cities.”

“We loved this preschool for our child. The teachers speak French all day even to each other. Our child sings songs, speaks and seems to think in French now. We can’t say enough about our wonderful experience at Mes Amis. We are so excited that there is an After School Program for school age kids of 1, 2, or 3 days a week.”

– Juliet N.

“We have been very happy with Mes Amis French School. Our three year old attends the preschool program. I like that they focus on academics as well as emotional and social development. Getting to do this all while learning French is a bonus! I also have two elementary age children in After School Program. I’m always impressed how fun Mes Amis makes learning French. The kids look forward to going every week. Merci, Mes Amis!”

–  Maren R.

“Knowing another language opens up our minds and strengthens our communication skills. It’s never too early or too late to learn French. Join Mes Amis French School, where en français is fun to learn.”
