La Petite Ecole - Le Lycee Francais de San Diego Reviews
March 2020 lock-down: in-class school ended on Friday & switched online on Monday. My child had meetings 2/day w her main teacher, 3/5 weekly w English teacher, PE, music, science, art. A monitored recess chat & video-chat allowed socialization. Kids were taught online appropriateness. Curriculum was completed few weeks before the end of the school year, allowing for coding classes.
- Curriculum integrated garden
- Multicultural fair
- Science fair
- Fun Run (raising funds for non-profit)
A new director has joined who is committed to strengthening the team, with excellent communication skills & significant integration of STEM, stronger anti-bullying program. I am confident that whether my child attends in-class or online for fall 2020, academic goals will be met.
