"We believe that teaching languages in a multicultural environment is the best way to cultivate the individual confidence and abilities of our pupils, so that they can achieve their goals and contribute to society as thoughtful, well-rounded citizens of the world. By giving pre-school-age children the opportunity to learn French as an additional language, it quickly becomes second nature. Generally, complete fluency is acquired by Middle School. Our system also provides the opportunity for native French speakersï¿½ï¿½enrolling at any levelï¿½ï¿½to maximize their time in becoming proficient in English.
Based on the French National Curriculum and combined with key American building blocks, our program offers students the best of both worlds:
From the extensive French curriculumï¿½ï¿½taught in Frenchï¿½ï¿½students become highly proficient critical thinkers by acquiring the rigorous writing skills and broad academic knowledge necessary for the French Baccalaureate.
From our strong American programï¿½ï¿½taught in Englishï¿½ï¿½students receive the academic preparation that is demanded by American colleges and universities.
From multicultural exposure, students gain valuable social and communication skills, and become exceptionally open-minded.
Taking into account the richness, diversity and challenges of this dual-language system, students schooled at the Lycï¿½e are well-prepared to meetï¿½ï¿½and often, exceedï¿½ï¿½the demands of the best universities in France, Europe and North America."
