Choisir LFSF : une éducation bilingue, multiculturelle hors pair

Reflection on Innovation, from a Senior's perspective

"What is innovation to me? It's everything from building apps to creating lipstick." Some years ago, Hannah was a little girl struggling to speak French when she started at LFSF. Today, as she is getting ready to embark on a new chapter at Columbia University, she can officially add Python to her list of languages.

"LFSF is a little jewel of a school for ALL!"

Open learning: au Lycée Français de San Francisco, on réinvente l’école

Open Learning, ce sont toutes les activités et initiatives qui permettent d’élargir les apprentissages au-delà du monde traditionnel de l’éducation, offrant ainsi à la salle de classe la possibilité de s’articuler harmonieusement et stratégiquement avec le monde économique et social qui l’entoure. 

LFSF at the SF Bilingual Fair

The second edition of the SF Bilingual Fair on Saturday was the demonstration of a real growing interest of Bay Area parents for bilingualism and bilingual education. The main actors of bilingual education were present, and LFSF was leading the way, as the main sponsor and presenter of the event.

The Early Learning Program at LFSF

Early education has been a priority and a specificity of the French education program for many years. The skills acquired by children during the very first years at school are important for their academic future and their social development.

How to best prepare your child : the benefits of bilingualism

What skills do children need today to become positive actors of their global generation? That is a question most parents come to address when considering schools for their kids. In the vast selection of options available in the Bay Area, multilingual schools like LFSF provide children with a true advantage.
