A Special Letter from Philippe Roux

Over the years, Laurence and I have intentionally remained discreet about our private lives and my professional career.

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Coffee & Conversation

This morning, I had the pleasure of welcoming parents for our first p’tit déj – a breakfast event that will take place every month until the end of the year. It was an excellent opportunity for me to take the pulse of the school and to identify the issues that matter to our families – what they worry about, what they are happy with, what disappoints them, what they like, and what they like a little less.
