At Le Lycée’s High School in southern California, education is a blend of the sciences and the arts where students, guided and instructed by the staff, become true critical thinkers and acquire the tools needed to be lifelong learners.
This unique program provides each student with the research and analytical tools needed to enter college prepared to “hit the ground running.” While other schools are measuring multiple choice test results, Le Lycée also measures these test results while at the same time engaging students in rigorous dialectic exercises designed to turn each into a quality thinker. The student-to-teacher ratio is ideal for in-depth discussion and team projects..
Le Lycée is in constant contact with colleges to guarantee that its students have all of the courses required to enter college including the A-G requirements for the University of California system. 96% of Le Lycée students go to American universities and colleges. The International School Program follows the California Educational Standards as a minimum guideline for developing its curriculum. The French School Program follows the curriculum developed by the French Ministry of Education. Each section adheres to the same principles of serious scholasticism.
Le Lycée offers AP courses for students in both sections. Among these are AP courses for Biology, Economics, English, World History, French Literature, and Studio Art as well as others as there is a need. Le Lycée hosts SAT coaching on-campus to help each student achieve his or her highest potential during the entire school year as well as summer. The Counseling Department works carefully with every student to assure that he is able to apply confidently to his college of choice.
Of course, each student receives a hard-earned American high school diploma. In addition, students in the French School Program sit for the prestigious and difficult French Baccalaureat (classic or FAB) and Le Lycée students consistently receive outstanding scores.
The new Raymond and Esther Kabbaz High School is designed to house all the essentials necessary for a successful high school career and for creating a noteworthy college application. Le Lycée believes that there is no substitute for quality work in a stimulating environment and students are noticeably proud of their programs.
