The year 2010-2011 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Lycée Français de New York. This private school in Manhattan, founded in 1935, has more than 1,300 students, from preschool through twelfth grade. The school’s curriculum is anchored in the French language and culture, drawing on the academically rigorous French educational tradition, while at the same time embracing the American educational values that foster creativity and pragmatism. Culminating in the French baccalauréat with its international options, LFNY’s strong bicultural and bilingual program enables its graduates to attend the most prestigious universities in the United States, Canada, France, and beyond.
On the occasion of Lycée Français de New York’s seventy-fifth anniversary, this commemorative book takes us on a journey back in time, exploring the school’s history and traditions while revealing what LFNY has become today. This book is a celebration of the school and its unique approach to bilingual education.
