image320x240.jpgWonderful news in the quest to create a Dual Language - French Middle School Program in Manhattan! MS256 Academic & Athletic Excellence on the Upper West Side is looking to add a Dual Language - French Program for Fall 2013. The program would begin with 6th grade.

On behalf of Principal Perl at MS 256, we would like to invite interested families to a Meet & Greet/Open House on Tuesday, December 18th.  This event will take place from 5:00pm – 7:00pm and refreshments will be served. It will be an opportunity to meet with some of MS 256's teachers, students and families. 

MS 256 Meet & Greet/Open House

154 West 93rd Street

Tuesday, December 18


RSVP - not required

Principal Perl is aware that the deadline for middle school admissions is fast approaching and wants all parents to make informed choices. Of note to parents at PS 84, Principal Perl has reached out to the Placement Office about creating an exception to the choice process which would essentially create a system whereby students in the French Dual Language Program at PS 84 would have seats reserved for them at the French Dual Language Program at MS 256.  Of course, students could apply to other schools and decide whether or not they wanted to continue with the Dual Language Program, but they would be guaranteed the right to do so if that is what the family wanted.  He informed us that the Placement Office is VERY open to making this happen.

Recently, Principal Perl had the opportunity to visit PS 84, met with some of the teachers and the fifth grade Dual Language - French students. He was very impressed. He is excited about the opportunity to extend what is already an amazing Dual Language - French program into middle school. 

Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may have a child in an elementary school dual language and/or bilingual French program.
