School Notes

  • The curriculum is carefully organized to promote bilingualism. All English courses are taught as they would be in any competitive American independent school, with anglophone teachers, teaching methods, and textbooks. Similarly, all French courses are taught as they would be in France, with francophone teachers, as prescribed by the French Ministry of National Education.
