Serving 145 students from preschool through the fifth grade, the Pasadena Campus offers its diverse student body the benefits of a full French immersion program while satisfying both French and American educational standards.
Having relocated in July 2006 from Monrovia, the campus thrives in the heart of Pasadena and is conveniently located across from Pasadena City College. Exuding old-world charm with its intimate size and beautiful landscaping, the campus consists of a two-story building with 11 classrooms (5 downstairs and 6 upstairs), a dual language library, a computer lab used for student research and didactic exercises, and dedicated outside dining and play areas.
Each classroom is outfitted with an interactive whiteboard and projector, and each member of our teaching team skillfully integrates technology (including student iPad usage) in daily learning to maximize student participation and critical thinking. A separate multipurpose room serves as a versatile venue for music classes, indoor extra-curricular activities and special meetings, while an auditorium invites larger group activities, such as student performances, workshops, etc.
Canopied lunch areas shelter students at snack and lunch times, and students enjoy the daily use of the basketball court and playgrounds whose specially designed play structures invite physical exercise, fun and social interaction in a safe setting for even the youngest students.
We are proud of the tight-knit community we enjoy and do our utmost to serve our parents and students alike, with extended daycare services available (7am to 6pm), a formal study hall program to help students complete their homework and obtain extra help, and a formal after school enrichment activities program designed to broaden student experience. Our campus’ annual 3 day Joshua Tree camping trip for families K through 5th remains a special highlight of our educational offerings and a unique bonding and community-building experience for all.
