The American Section Mission Statement
The American Section seeks to instill in students a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, and the ability to engage confidently in self-directed learning. We provide a learning environment characterized by positive reinforcement and support, with opportunities for inquiry-based learning. Our faculty encourages and supports individual initiatives.
Certified American teachers, who bring their American teacher training and cultural experience to the classroom, teach all American Section classes. The American Section’s portion of each child’s school week accounts for approximately 20% of classroom time. During the remaining 80% of the time, students are taught by French teachers, according to the program directed by the French National Education Ministry. The result is a unique bilingual and bi-cultural education, which combines the best of the two education systems.
