    I ❤️ the LFNY! I’m an Argentinian mother of two beautiful girls (13 and 8 years old) who where born and raised in Rome, Italy. We arrived to NYC almost four years ago and fortunately they had this amazing opportunity of perusing their studies at the LFNY. I think the school combines the best of the French and American education, the best of both worlds! As a parent, I couldn’t ask for more! This school is the best gift I could ever give to them!

    We came here in August from Vienna (Austria) where our daughter used to go to the Lycee Francais de Vienne. From the first day we were welcomed and had a lot of attention what made us feel like being part of the family. The program is various and ambitious but not stressful and that makes learning to a positive experience. Compliments, that’s not easy to achieve!
    We highly recommend the LFNY!
    My 2 children have been at the lycée since pre-school. There are now in 6th and 3rd grade. I have consistently been impressed by the quality of the teachers , their empathy, their sensibility to the specifics of the child, their knowledge and enthusiasm. My children are thriving there thanks to a very warm and caring atmosphere and to a growing attention to social emotional learning. The importance of bilingualism cannot be overstated of course, for us there are cultural reasons obviously but also for brain development.
    The lycée also provides an incredible window into the outside world thanks to its artist in residence program and many incredible conferences and panels.
