Primary

Mastery of the French language, learning the first concepts of mathematics, citizen training are the priorities of the training provided in primary school. Teaching also gives way to modern languages, sport, science, technology, artistic and cultural education, moral and civic education.

Cycle 2 (CP, CE1, CE2): the cycle of fundamental learning
Cycle 2 programs promote continuity with nursery school by organizing lessons in major areas of activity:

  • French
  • Mathematics,
  • Modern Languages,
  • Physical and Sports Education,
  • Artistic education,
  • Question the world,
  • Moral and civic education

Learning in school is to question the world. It is also about acquiring specific languages, acquisitions for which the simple fact of growing up is not enough. Cycle 2 offers the duration and consistency necessary for progressive and demanding learning. In cycle 2, all the lessons question the world. Fluency in languages, especially French, is the priority.

Cycle 3 (CM1, CM2, and 6th): the consolidation cycle

The learning areas revolve around the following lessons:

  • French,
  • Mathematics,
  • Modern Languages,
  • Physical and Sports Education,
  • Visual arts,
  • Music education,
  • The history of the arts,
  • History and geography,
  • Science and technology,
  • Moral and civic education

Cycle 3 now links the last two years of primary school and the first year of middle school, with a reinforced concern for pedagogical continuity and consistency of learning for the acquisition of the common foundation of knowledge, skills, and culture. This cycle has a double responsibility:
Consolidate the fundamental learnings which were initiated in cycle 2 and which condition subsequent learnings;
allow a better transition between primary school and college by ensuring continuity and progressiveness between the three years of the cycle.

Educational project

All classes follow the French national education program.
Students’ progress in learning is the subject of continuous assessments in class. Families are regularly informed of their child’s results. Thus, each quarter, families receive the child’s school book, accompanied by the teachers’ assessments.
