Respect, Integrity, Compassion
In French, the word éducation has a different meaning from its English homonym. L’éducation is a holistic term that refers not only to what a child learns academically, but primarily to the development of a child’s character and morals. It could be more closely translated into English as “upbringing” or “character education.” In France, you can have a PhD. and still be considered as someone “sans éducation,” if you act in a rude, impolite, or self-centered way.
At Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, we challenge our students scholastically, but we go beyond academics to develop responsible, ethical, disciplined, and community-oriented students. Our teachers are dedicated to instilling certain core human values, such as respect for others, fairness, compassion, and self-reliance.
