The École

<p>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.</p> <p>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. This belief is at the heart of our uniquely-designed bilingual program, in which students learn to not just speak, read, and write in two languages, but also to think, feel, and act in ways that are informed by two cultures. To always see, explore, and understand the world around them from two perspectives is the gift of the deeply bi-literate student, succinctly captured in our school’s motto, “Light through language”.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>The École continues to grow and now offers its unique bilingual program for the two-year-olds! The brand-new Pre-Nursery class is fully integrated into The École’s bilingual program and constitutes now the very first year of Maternelle. The Pre-Nursery welcomes children who are to be two years old by the end of December; they will now be able to benefit from The École’s unique bilingual curriculum from Pre-Nursery to 8th Grade.</p> <p>We are currently accepting applications for 2022-2023.
