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.
