As our children's development stages change, I am thankful to all the thoughtful teachers at Le Lycee Francais de Los Angeles who individualize their teaching methods and messages to reach a wider range of children. It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes a few caring teachers to instill confidence in a child - confidence to take on challenges and persevere.
During our parent teacher conferences they were able to communicate what they saw and how we might be able to improve our sons confidence level when it came to speaking French. An adjustment was made and his confidence has improved due to help from his teachers. I'd say the teachers are very effective.
Since we've only been through second grade I can't speak to higher grades but for our family last year it was just right. The Gradelink program on line is helpful when it comes to keeping it all straight too.
Last year a student passed away unexpectedly and the schools handling of the event could not have been better. They let the parents know what happened and aided us with ways to talk about this with our children. I was pleased with the approach.
This school is very strict and honesty, integrity and fairness are important here. When we've had a problem with behavioral issues between our child and others the teachers have dealt with the issues well and helped us improve communication between the child and the other childs parents.
My daughter is in the Middle school, over all I can say she get very good education; there are a few old fashion and a little mean teacher but she can tolerated them. A lot off mean and gossipy girl click, Not obvious to fit in, it may be the same in other school,I don't know....
My daughter is finishing second grade at Lycee and she is thriving. The twelve children in her classroom have formed a cohesive, comfortable group over the years, the teachers are caring, have been wonderful at working through difficulties be they social or academic, and my daughter is happy to go to school each day. We do not speak French at home, but her French is fluent at this point. She reads and writes well in both English and French, and she has a developed both an ability to think about numbers abstractly and great computational skills. Art, drama, music are all part of the curriculum, which I think is important. The website is a mess and communication from the school can be confusing, but these things are details. Where it counts, this school is great.
