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!"

Eric, Jason, and their children Stella and Xavier, joined LFSF five years ago. Today, academically and socially, they're still feeling lucky. And they are committed to doing their part to make sure people know that LFSF is a school where all families are welcome! 

Artists in Residence, a great opportunity for our students

For the past few years, thanks to parents' generous donations, LFSF students have enjoyed the visits of artists in residence coming from France. Edouard MANCEAU is coming to visit us for the next two weeks. We asked a few questions to Nadine LEMAITRE, librarian on the Ashbury campus.

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.

A great first year in La Petite Ecole!

La Petite Ecole is the part time program launched last fall on our Sausalito campus. We are talking with Claire FRANCE who is running the program and asked her to reflect on this first year.
