    Our two children have been at the Lycee since nursery school (Ashbury campus) and are now in middle school and high school (Ortega campus). We selected the Lycee for the following reasons: it's the "French" French school, the teachers are top notch, the curriculum is rigorous, the college acceptance list is impressive, it's affordable as compared to other private schools, the class trips are amazing (e.g., Morocco, Mexico City...), there are a huge variety of programs (e.g., technovation for girls), the campuses are homey and safe, classroom sizes are small, the administration is efficient and caring, and the community is open and vibrant. Our children are perfectly bilingual (and becoming trilingual), have close friends, and are on the path to being multicultural global citizens.

    My experience at lycee these past 12 years have been accompanied by many ups and downs.
    I am currently a Senior, juggling US college applications, SAT, constant testing, and exams and studying for the BAC.

    I am very grateful for the school to have given me a bilingual education, yet I truly feel the lycee has burned me out.

    There are only 3-4 teachers that I would say are truly doing their job but sadly many of the rest are not preparing us for the BAC and are not giving us serious lessons.

    What I am most disappointed in with this school would be the lack of interest in mental health. Especially in the last few years of high school, the majority of my peers have been under extreme stress when it comes to the workload and the grades not even mentioning some very difficult family situations.

    Please invest more time in the well-being + mental state of your students.
    Excellent academics but very competitive environment between the students which can be toxic at times. The readiness for American colleges varies, certain students are favored by the college counselor based on where they are applying and some students are entirely neglected. I had an amazing experience at this school as a French student however I would like to see more diversity. Overall very good.
