Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Almost Time for Back to School!

The first day of school is fast approaching and we can’t wait to see the kids next week. We took full advantage of the summer break to do some large-scale reconstruction work and have created five new classroom spaces—four in the Elementary & Middle School Building and one in Maternelle. We needed new spaces to accommodate our growing student body—we are very proud to be welcoming 319 kids to school on Tuesday.

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - On This Last Day of the School Year

There’s a distinctive flavor to the last days of school. We are excited and sad, exhausted and full of energy, liberated and anxious all at once.

Weekly Letter From Jean-Yves - You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

Last night, we celebrated the imminent end of this school year between colleagues.

Before I write another word, I would like, on behalf of the entire team, to wish her, Jules, and Stefan all the very best for their new adventure. I would particularly like to thank Rachel for the last two years during which an enormous amount of her energy was directed toward ensuring that our students and staff could work in the best possible conditions despite the pandemic that was raging around us.

Weekly Letter from Jean-Yves - Assessing Evaluations

I mentioned last week that I haven’t been spending enough time in Maternelle lately. And yet wonderful things are happening there and it is always a huge pleasure—as Laurence will concur—to drop into the classrooms and watch the children learning, playing, and growing. 206—as insiders refer to it—is a unique place where kindness, generosity, and respect are imbued with a special meaning.
