Located in New York’s vibrant Flatiron District, The École is an intimate and independent French-American school that cultivates an internationally-minded community of students. The École welcomes students from Nursery through 8th Grade and will open a Pre-Nursery class (for two-year-olds in September 2021). At The École, the goal of education is to develop well-informed, well-rounded, responsible and compassionate students who can create and connect to a world filled with possibilities.
Artfully blending the curriculum requirements and pedagogical approaches of the French and American systems, our faculty create rich academic environments for a diverse, international student body. From Maternelle through Middle School, students at The École are guided through the core language arts, social studies, math, and sciences content, as well as character and cultural enrichment, in both French and English. In our intimate classroom settings, our teachers aspire to provide bilingual learning opportunities that engage, challenge, inspire—and illuminate. Students also have the opportunity to choose between Mandarin and Spanish as part of the core curriculum beginning in third.
As of March 2021, all classes, from Nursery through 8th Grade, have been onsite since September 1st, and 97% of our students have been onsite since the beginning of the school year. Students who are not onsite join their class remotely. Added safety measures and requirements, such as daily temperature checks, mask-wearing and social distancing, have been put into place.
The École is fully accredited by the French Ministry of Education and affiliated with the Mission Laïque Française (MLF) and the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). It is also affiliated with the National Association of Independent Schools. All French teachers are certified by the French government, and American teachers, by New York State.
