There is a new bilingual program starting this fall at Lycée Jean Mermoz! The French Ministry of National Education has approved an American International Section to their school in Dakar. The program is designed to facilitate the integration and reception of foreign Anglophone students into the French educational system and to help them achieve expert language proficiency and develop bi- and pluri- cultural skills through additional teaching in Language Arts, literature and history and geography.
Starting in the 2019/2020 school year, the school will open enrollment to 24 students in grades CP (1st grade), CM1 (4th grade) and 5eme (7th grade.)
If you are interested in learning more about the program, Lycée Jean Mermoz is holding an informational session for American families in Dakar this Thursday, April 11th at 5 :30 pm. The meeting will take place in the amphitheater at the school. Please note, admission testing will take place in May and once the classes are full, they are closed.
