Our school offers an early-start, full immersion, dual language education to students from preschool through 5th grades. We will strive to add an additional grade each following year, to enable students to continue the bilingual program with us. Of course, for this to happen, we will need strong support from you, our current school community of parents!
The instruction follows the official guidelines of the French Ministry of National Education as well as the Core standards of education for the State of Florida. In addition, as a small private school we are able to follow closely the needs of each individual student. Our student/teacher ratio is invariably much smaller than that of other private schools. As we grow, we will be able to add more grade levels and teachers, always keeping a low ratio as one of our main goals.
We offer a full French program for half of the school day, and English for the other half. Both programs teach language arts, reading and writing, Mathematics and History. Courses in Science, Social Studies, Geography, computer lab, P.E., music and Art are alternated between French and English during the respective class time. In addition, an introductory course of Spanish / Italian is offered once a week.
Our classes are all equipped with computers and tablets.
The French teachers and American (English) teachers work closely together to cover all subjects, and make sure that both of the curriculums’ requirements are met.
