This year marked the opening of the School for International Studies in Brooklyn, New York’s first public French Dual Language Secondary School. This new institution provides the diverse French-speaking community of New York City a high quality public middle and high school option and reinforces our goal to enable children to learn from Kindergarten through 12th grade in a French dual language setting.
This significant addition to the New York bilingual landscape has been made possible by support from the French Embassy, FACE Foundation, the French Heritage Society, the Committee of French-speaking Societies (CAFUSA), the French Senate, the NYC Office of English Language Learners, public administrations, local grass-roots community efforts, foundations, corporations and hundreds of dedicated parents. As the year comes to a close, we ask for your renewed support to bolster this school’s potential and help it to achieve new heights. With your commitment, we will provide books and materials; innovative resources; teacher development; cultural enrichment; and the necessary support that will help create the first French dual language International Baccalaureate curriculum in a U.S. public school (for grades 6 to 12).
