Acceuil et Informations pour les Nouvelles  familles

L'École française de Raleigh a été créée pour offrir un programme éducatif bilingue aux enfants de Caroline du Nord. Nous sommes la seule école maternelle et élémentaire bilingue français et anglais de l'État, et notre école est en pleine croissance.

 

Nous avons ouvert notre école élémentaire en 2021 et sommes actuellement en train de demander l'accréditation auprès du ministère français de l'Éducation nationale et de l'AEFE (Agence pour L'Enseignement du Français à l'Etranger) pour rejoindre une liste prestigieuse d'écoles  fières d'enseigner la langue et la culture françaises à vos enfants et leur offrir une éducation d'excellence, unique  en Caroline du Nord.

 

Nous avons également commencé à planifier l’agrandissement de notre école pour en faire un lycée!

 Nous avons des projets ambitieux qui seront grandement bénéfiques pour nos enfants et notre communauté, en créant une école d'excellence et une future génération de locuteurs bilingues français = anglais. Dans notre monde globalisé, cela constituera un avantage certain pour la vie professionnelle future des étudiants et pour la promotion de la paix et de la compréhension entre les peuples et les cultures.

Nous pensons que rencontrer les familles en tête-à-tête est le meilleur moyen d'établir un lien personnel et de tirer le meilleur parti de votre visite à l'école. Toutes nos visites se déroulent donc une famille à la fois.

 

Nous vous invitons à vous inscrire pour une visite en personne et nous avons hâte de vous rencontrer, vous et votre famille !

Au cours de notre visite et de nos discussions, vous en apprendrez davantage sur:

  • La valeur et les avantages tout au long de la vie d’une éducation bilingue

  • Notre communauté diverse et internationale.

  • Les qualifications de nos professeurs

  • La structure de notre cursus de notre Toute Petite Section de Maternelle 1 (TPS-1) jusqu'au CM2.

  • L'importance que nous attachons au bien-être des étudiants et à leur apprentissage social et émotionnel

Et beaucoup plus!

  • Does my child need to know French to attend L’Ecole?
    For students entering preschool and kindergarten, NO French is required. Beginning in 1st grade, some command of French is required. Non-native speakers will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
  • We don’t speak French at home? Will my children still learn the language?
    Absolutely. Going to L’école gives your child the opportunity to learn another language, even if it is not spoken at home. What a gift!
  • My child doesn’t speak a word of French. How will they adapt?
    Many of our preschool and kindergarten students do not speak or understand any French when they start school. Beginning on the first day, our teachers introduce students to the French language through everyday activities, including games, stories, songs and play. Children’s natural capacity to learn and adapt means they will quickly begin to understand French, though some will take longer than others to feel comfortable speaking. Although children are encouraged to speak French in the classroom to teachers and each other, they are always able to express themselves and be understood in English. In addition, our native French-speaking students are encouraged to help and support their non-French-speaking friends.
  • How does language immersion work? When will my child understand and speak French?
    Language is acquired most effectively when it is learned in a meaningful social context, such as school. Through immersion, our students learn French as they learned their mother tongue: in a nurturing environment, with lots of encouragement, plenty of gentle repetition, and physical cues as needed. Most children will understand some French after just a few months. Some will begin experimenting with speaking right away, and others, though they may understand, will wait longer to speak until they feel more comfortable with the language.
  • When do students study English?
    Beginning Kindergarten and finishing through 5th grade, classes are taught 60% in French and 40% in English. Students study some subjects in both languages. By the end of 1st grade, the vast majority of our students are conversant French speakers, with age-appropriate literacy skills in both French and English.
  • Will my children acclimate into an English system after the 5th grade?
    Kids graduating from French programs transition fine into English programs are historically known for being accepted into top tier private schools, should your child continue in private school education.
  • Do you offer before and after school care?
    We offer before from 7:30 am – 8:30 am and after school care from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
  • What are the school hours?
    Elementary school (K through 5th): 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Preschool: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or full day 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Do you have art, music, gym, etc.?
    Yes! All elementary students have class time each week for music, visual arts, and STEM. They also have dedicated time for physical education and to visit the school library with their class.
  • Do you have a policy for siblings of current students?
    Yes. Siblings of current students receive a 5% tuition discount and have admissions priority. Siblings are not automatically accepted; all applicants must complete the full admissions process.
  • When should my family start the admissions process?
    It’s a good idea to start looking at schools in the fall for the following school year. Our priority application deadline is in March. To ensure your child has a spot for the upcoming school year, we highly recommend applying before the March deadline. We continue to accept applications on a rolling basis.
  • Who should apply for tuition assistance?
    Elementary school families who have thoroughly reviewed their financial situation, including all sources of income, and feel they need help paying tuition are encouraged to apply. (We do not currently offer financial aid for preschool.) Aid is issued as a grant; there is no repayment obligation.
