From the Board of Trustees

The Lycée Français de New York welcomes students from around the world, of every race, ethnicity and religion. Consistent with its mission to embrace diversity, our school must strive to build a community of teaching and learning that is inclusive, culturally sensitive and equitable, and in which all feel a strong belonging in the pursuit of educational excellence. The Board recognizes and embraces our mosaic of differences and is committed to eradicating racism, and to building an empathetic anti-racist community free of prejudice and bias of any kind, in partnership with all stakeholders: the students, the parents, the faculty, the staff, the administration and alumni.

Creativity through Culture

Understanding and embracing culture lies at the heart of our educational mission. An openness to culture, and cultures, gives our students many experiences to draw on as they develop their own creativity across many fields of study--from the arts, literature and the humanities to science, technology, engineering and math.
