Lycée Français de Chicago Reviews

I attended the Lycée from pre-K through twelfth grade. Now, with a year of college under my belt, I am overall very grateful for my time there. The teachers were like family, as were your peers, since it was a small and tight-knit community. Be assured, it's a very heavy and at time grueling workload, especially for an American student who didn't speak French at home. But the feeling at graduation, exams done, celebrating with your best friends, teachers, mentors, and family, is irreplaceable!

Our oldest child started at the Lycée six years ago. She is now in third grade, with siblings in first grade and junior-k. We have been extremely impressed with the school. All of the teachers have been amazing. They care deeply about the children and are attentive to their individual needs. I like that they emphasize the joy of learning. They have an integrated approach to the curriculum where what they study in different subjects is connected to common themes throughout the year. This includes substantial engagement with art and music, among other things. Our third grade daughter is now fluent in French and she reads as well in French as she does in English. Our younger children are picking up the language more every day. All three of them love going to school. Parents are very involved in the school. The prevailing attitude is one of mutual support and encouragement. I plan to keep our children in the school all the way though 12th grade.
We have been at the school for 13 years and have a boy and a girl. Our daughter is fully fluent and will graduate with the French Bac which is very well respected. She travelled to Montreal, France and China this year to represent our school.
Our college counsellor is amazing and the children get into top schools. The teachers are very dedicated, staying late to help if I child needs it. We did have more teachers leave this year, but when I spoke with a lot of the teachers most were following a spouse to a new job.
Our son struggles more with the French and may choose to do a bilingual IB program in 9th grade. Less French. but still a highly regarded program. He travelled to Montreal this year for a math contest.
I feel the school is good value. Yes, like most private schools you are expected to give to the Annual Campaign but it is not forced- like at some schools.
