Education Programs:

We offer students a well-balanced program that combines the best of the French and American educational approaches. The curriculum in each grade is carefully integrated so that French and English instruction complement each other. The French educational system divides the primary grades into three cycles: Cycle 1 (preschool and K), Cycles 2 & 3 ((K-1-2-3-4-5) & Cycle 4

- Pre-Kindergarten, Preschool & Kindergarten programs (Cycle 1)
- Lower School programs:  Elementary Grade 1-5 (Cycle 2 & 3)
- Middle School programs:  Grades 6-8 (Cycle 4)

Additionally:  Extended day care & after-school enrichment classes, athletics, the arts and bilingual summer camps.

Our Teachers:

The teachers in our school are highly experienced and qualified professionals. All of the teachers in our French program hold credentials from the French Ministry of Education, and all are native speakers. All of the teachers in our English program are fully credentialed as well. Teachers at our Middle School hold single-subject credentials in the subject they teach, and our art, music, gardening, and PE programs are likewise taught by specialists.

Why Choose Bilingualism?
Bilingualism carries concrete advantages and improves abilities for children who grow up speaking a second language. Learning another language is a step towards joining the global community. When more than half the world’s population is bilingual, mastering a second language teaches ways of interacting with the world.
