Welcome to Middle School

We welcome students from 6th through 8th grades.

Middle School offers a rigorous bilingual program rich in inquiry-based learning.

Our small class sizes allow us to focus on each individual, capitalizing on the strengths of the American and French systems to support students as they develop academic proficiency in both languages.

Our students are well prepared to transition into either French high schools or American high schools and other international schools.

Middle School Program

Continuing the Bilingual Program

The middle school program provides a bilingual and multicultural education through an equitable distribution of instruction: approximately 58% in French, 34% in English and 8% in a foreign language.

Its mission is to offer an academic program of excellence so that our students can go on to the best French or American high schools.

World of Work

L’EINY has started a program for our small class of 7th graders, called “The World of Work.” As a part of this program, we are inviting about ten speakers, one every two weeks, to discuss what s/he does for a living.

The goal of the project is to help our students learn about the many types of career and educational paths that exist, as well providing them an opportunity to practice their interviewing and information-gathering skills, and an appreciation of the work that goes on in their community every day.

Students prepare questions in advance to guide the discussions, which focuses on topics such as the education and training required for a particular job, a typical work day, the facilities and material involved in different professions, professional ethics and standards, relationships with colleges, and the impact of the economy (past, present, and future) on a particular career.

Acquiring Core Competencies

While drawing everyday inspiration from America’s Core Corriculum, EINY provides instruction in the middle school based on the Grilles de référence of the Livret personnel des compétences (Palier 3), recommended by the French Ministry of National Education. Each subject promotes the competencies which acquired throughout the school year. Accordingly, the school places priority on:

  1. mastery of the French language, taught by a teacher certified in Modern Literature
  2. daily practical instruction in English through our bilingual program
  3. competencies in mathematics and sciences thanks to a high weekly volume of hours in both languages
  4. access to technology with a Chromebook or iPad for each middle school student
  5. knowledge of humanist culture through programs open to the cultures of the world
  6. social and civic competencies mobilized with the unique project Caught Being Kind
  7. autonomy, initiative and orientation through the meetings of the annual program World of Work

Character Education

The EINY Middle school has implemented its own character education program. Character education is a teaching method which fosters the development of ethical and responsible behavior by teaching students about the good values that people should possess. It teaches the students the value of caring about other people, honesty, responsibility, and other important traits that make for an upstanding citizen.

Each month, the guidance counselor selects a character trait. The trait is first introduced during advisory class where the character trait is defined. The students also learn various ways to demonstrate the character trait and then participate in activities which focus on the trait.

Afterward, all of the middle school teachers find a unique way to incorporate the character trait of the month into their individual curriculum. Posters representing the trait of the month are posted around the school to remind students of the character trait for that month.
