Ecole Bilingue was created by ardent supporters of bilingual education. Our founder, Julie Fabian, served as our first Director/President, as well as Board President for our first seven years. Julie was instrumental in many aspects of our school, including the creation of Fête Française. Ecole Bilingue began as l’Ecole Maternelle, a full-immersion, French preschool. The first class consisted of just 16 four-year old New Orleans students learning about words, numbers, art and play in French. This program was the first of its kind in Louisiana.
Today, Ecole Bilingue is one of the finest French-immersion schools in the United States. From the first class of 16 pre-kindergarten students, Ecole Bilingue has grown to include more than 220 students ranging from age two to eighth grade.
Mission and Core Beliefs
Mission (Pre-K):
• To provide families seeking an early start for putting their children on a pathway to global citizenship with a structured French curriculum in a nurturing environment.
Mission (K+):
• To provide our students a pathway to global citizenship by developing a deep appreciation and mastery of the languages and cultures of France, America, and the world.
• The definition of a world-class education
We value…
• Of our teachers, curriculum, staff and work
• For our families, within our city and on our campus
• Of our students, in our curriculum and with acceptance
• Through pushing ourselves, by taking risks, fueled by curiosity and overcoming them
• Of other cultures, other languages, other values and for each other
• In our thinking, learning and our process
• To new ideas, new cultures and new thoughts
• To learning and growing, maximizing our potential, to each other and for all we do
Ecole Bilingue is the only private French school in New Orleans that is accredited by the French Ministry of Education providing multilingual education for 2-year old students through the 7th grade.
Ecole Bilingue also offers an English language arts program designed to balance out and complement the strength of our French curriculum, as well as to prepare our students to succeed in English and to make smooth transitions to the best American high school college preparatory programs.
We also provide high-quality American studies and math programs to students enrolled in the elementary and middle school programs. We constantly strive to maximize and balance our academic courses in French language, math, science, social studies, visual arts, physical education and music with supplemental classes in English language arts, American history, geography and civics.
We actively integrate a harmonized curriculum between the French instructional expectations and American grade level expectations in mathematics and science.
Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle-Orléans is delighted to welcome students and families into their school. Applications for the 2017-2018 school year are still being accepted. Applications for the 2018-2019 school year will start being accepted on January 4, 2018.
