  • Primary Overview

    18 October 2022 at 6:00pm
    Join us in person at the Lycée to learn more about the Lycée's Nursery/PS - Y5/CM2 program. Our approach to bilingual instruction supports students in developing critical thinking skills and moving our students from concrete observations to abstract reasoning, a fundamental element of the French Curriculum.

    Beginning in Y1/CP, classroom instruction takes place 80% in French and 20% in English, with students engaging in French, history, science and math with their French homeroom teacher, who is paired with an native English-speaking teacher for English and special projects.

    Language development is at the core of our primary school. In order to become bilingual, children need to experience the many dimensions of language (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in both languages in a motivating, reassuring environment that makes sense to them. We look at bilingualism as its own language and not merely the combination of learning both at the same time.
