School Notes:

The benefit of France’s renowned centralized curriculum is that all students are prepared for college success through an established curriculum that sets high expectations and teaches students to think logically and clearly. The uniform curriculum and teaching methods of the French system allow children to transfer easily from one French school to another as their families move from San Francisco to Hong Kong, London, Moscow or Paris. For families who stay in the Bay Area, Le Lycée is a single solution to students’ education.
