Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Unhappily they mostly teach for the weak students, so even with so small classes (max 17 students) they do not seem to progress. Unlike other middle-school, they do not make group level. So math level cannot be good as everybody has to wait for the lower level to understand. The quality of the teacher is a lottery, some are really lazy...

Homework is going from minimum to none. Reading is a lot less than in public school and writing is minimal. Students have close to no project to do.

There is no good role model at Le Lycee, teacher are very complaisant, and money and fame have their priviledge.

We are having a desappointing experience there. Middle-school is not worth the money and it is really sad, as we would have appreciate a nice education with a French touch. The principal seems a nice man but has no leadership at all. There is an increasing bullying situation that nobody want to face. The president had absolutely no vision for her school beside making money and the recruitment of teachers looks more like a lottery. We did not have one year without concerns and worries, a few teachers were fired for good reason but some are kept for bad reason... Even supervisors (female) are carrying gossip and show attitude, such a bad model for our kids. We saw many classmates of our kid leave that school lately and many more are leaving at the end of this year. Most of all, there is no compassion in that school, no real friendship, no communication, no inspiration. Our kid is so bored. There is a lab for science but they never use it, there is a computer room which is a joke as kids are not learning much in it,

We left last year, after trying hard to accept all the discrepancies for a few years. Were in 2 campuses. The Middle School is the most problematic one. The principal doesn't even speak English well enough and has no experience of the English curriculum and lives in his family bubble (nor does the high school principal who most of the time is absent). The president has really great ideas but has the wrong office staff around her who just wants to please her. A lot of screaming from the mostly not carrying staff (sensible boys not welcome). "French lunch" is a joke. Couple of good older teachers but the new ones are too young, just graduated teachers -but with visas! No competitive curriculum (sciences are at loss!) and no competitive sports. International crowd good, but for how long? Rich and famous more than welcome. French families needed but disregarded. Sad transition as now the Lycée is trying to get america families to get in (french government dropped scholarships). No real music program, no recycling, no sense of LA community. Expansive for what it offers!

It's an environment where a child can grow and mature to become a productive member of the world society.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

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.

Amount of homework: Agree

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.

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....
