Lower School: Academic Overview
Ecole Internationale de New York offers a French bilingual immersion program for students aged 3-11, from Nursery through 5th grade. The French and American curricula combine the French National Education program with the main standards of New York State in the preschool and the elementary school.
EINY embraces and celebrates diversity among its students, parents, and employees. The school is the reflection of the society in which we live. It is the place where many cultures and languages coexist to create a stimulating and multicultural environment that nurtures the uniqueness of each child. Our parent body is diverse and each student acquires and studies one or several foreign languages while developing his/her own personality through a myriad of child-centered activities and educational projects.
EINY enrolls French speaking and non-French speaking students coming from the local community as well as from international schools in Western Europe and around the world. Students are French or French-American, American, and international students who have a different nationality and speak a third language at home.
Our French and American academic and rigorous curricula nurture each child’s gift for languages. They allow our students to succeed in the French, American and international school setting while developing their intellectual and personal growth in a stimulating, diverse, and multicultural environment. Both French and English curricula are harmonized on an ongoing basis. The benefits from a dual approach to learning come from the mingling of the flexibility and creativity of the American system with the more rigorous French methods. Both programs complement each other and their synergy allows our school to deliver academic excellence at all levels.
