Press Release (ePRNews.com) - San Diego, CA - Jul 06, 2017 - La Petite Ecole, a local, fully-immersive French school offering education from Pre-K through eighth grade is relocating to accommodate for growing popularity, allowing for the unique educational opportunity and enrollment of sixty additional students.
Currently accommodating for 185 students, La Petite Ecole offers an educational experience that meets the needs of students from ages 2 – 14, providing enrichment and immersion. Certified by the French ministry, the school uses the French learning system. The classes are small, no more than 12 per class, the teachers are native French, 96 percent, and overall, students are immersed into the French culture, while developing fundamental skills and an education level allowing students to transfer at any time to the American system.
With this set expansion, La Petite Ecole is able to offer 60 additional students the opportunity to learn and grow in a unique environment, and experience the French learning system, while becoming fluent in the language. Students may step in the door knowing no French, and are guaranteed to step out bilingual.
“There is a unique culture present amongst our students and staff, one that goes beyond just the obvious French culture,” says Director, Thierry Pasquet. “The sense of community and family is apparent the minute you walk through our doors, and we’re thrilled to be able to be able to invite additional students to experience this with us, while helping to develop them into the beings they’ll become.”
At La Petite, teaching is not a profession, but rather a mission. The school aims to develop the whole human being, with physical, emotional, esthetic, ethic and cognitive development being part of the curriculum. Being amongst only 40 other French schools in the United States, La Petite Ecole is within a unique class of educational opportunities.
The school’s new location will be 8401 Aero Drive, San Diego, CA 92123 with a grand opening date of January 5, 2018. The school is to expand to reach more than 500 students in the next 2 phases. Le Petite Ecole is currently accepting enrollment for the fall semester.
