Register now to one of the twenty-five dual‐language classes in New York!
Next Fall, several New York public schools will open their doors to more and more French-English dual-language classes.
The schools are PS125 (Harlem), PS58 (Caroll Gardens ‐ Brooklyn), PS73 (Bronx), CIS22 (Bronx),
PS84 (Upper West Side), and PS151 in Woodside (Queens). PS84 (Williamsburgh), and other schools like the New York French-American Charter School are in the works and might join this ever-growing family by September 2010.
Altogether, these schools will open a total of 25 classes, serving more than 600 students, mostly at primary school level, with the exception of Middle School 22. In just three years these programs will have increased enrollment exponentially from 75 kids in 2007! This success is due to the joint efforts of several determined school principals, hundreds of motivated parents, top-rated teachers, and various institutional partners like the French Embassy or Education Francaise a New York who bring support through books and expertise.
These immersion classes in French and English are geared toward Francophones, Anglophones and bilingual students, as well as students who speak little or no English. Each individual school assures its own individual enrollment.
Several information sessions have been scheduled for the following weeks. Registration has started.
January 26 at PS58
February 1 at PS151
Other sessions will be announced on the schools' websites or here on NewYorkinFrench
