Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles Elementary curriculum offers a stimulating International and French School Program, from Kindergarten 2 to Fifth grade. Elementary school is an exciting time for students. It is a time to instill life-time learning habits and self reliance. It is a time when students have the freedom to learn in a safe and nurturing environment, while being guided with structure and care. It is natural and inevitable for a Lycée Français de Los Angeles student to develop an early love for learning given such opportunity.
The Lycée Français Elementary student is exposed to an expansive and inspiring bilingual curriculum. Each language reinforces one another and streamlines into a lifetime undercurrent of knowledge and connections which would not be available in monolingual setting. The juxtaposition of French and English language creates both contrast and comparison for a student, and as Joanne Wolfgang von Goethe says, “Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own."
Both the International and French sections of the Elementary Curriculum benefit from a generous schedule of French and English coursework as well as Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, Art, Computer Science, Music, and Physical Education. Students learn from many resources as each campus has a full bilingual library, computer center, and garden. Class projects take center stage in the International and French Program giving life like meaning to a student's learning and individual expression.
Each campus has an after school program consisting of various activities such as: Ballet, Fencing, Karate, Drama, and Sports. Students may also attend Study Hall and receive guidance in their academics and homework.
