Artfully integrating the best of the French and American educational systems

From Maternelle through Middle School, The École’s students are guided through a rich academic program in the Humanities, Math, and Sciences, as well as Character and cultural enrichment. All curricula requirements, for each grade level, of the two educational systems are covered, in classes held in either French or English, by native-speaking faculty, as appropriate.

In intimate classroom settings, or out in New York City’s many artistic and historical institutions, using traditional and technology-based techniques, and blending French and American approaches, our teachers aspire to provide individual and group bilingual learning opportunities that engage, challenge, inspire—and illuminate.
