Located in New York’s vibrant Flatiron District, The École is an intimate and independent, N-8th Grade French-American school that cultivates an internationally-minded community of students. 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”.
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.
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.
There are still seats available for the 2020-2021 school year in some grades, and we are currently accepting applications for 2021-2022. To find out more, sign up for one of our online or onsite Open Houses or write to us at bonjour@theEcole.org.
