Preparing children to face and embrace tomorrow’s world

Ecole Française Greater Boston offers educational programming in French, designed to foster exploration, social-emotional development, and a desire to learn. Our goal is to help children build a truly bilingual identity and a strong early academic foundation that will seamlessly transition them from our school to the world beyond. By creating a collaborative, caring, and positive educational environment, we are committed to helping them thrive not only as students but as individuals.

Announcement

 

We are planning to open our school on September 1st, 2020. Unlike many private and public schools who will need to alternate between in-person and remote learning to be able to accommodate proper social distancing, EFGB will have enough space to welcome its students in-person at the same time. EFGB would also offer a significant discount on the days that we would switch to remote learning, to support its families.

We have just moved from Québec and the abrupt change from French to English can be shocking for a six-year-old. I wanted a place where he continues to express himself well during his transition year.

We are very happy with the quality of education that our children are receiving. They are engaged in their learning, very proud of their achievements and work. The teachers are absolutely fantastic. They are clearly committed to the children and provide meaningful and fun learning activities every day. We appreciate the variety of activities the children are involved in and all the wonderful art projects.

I really value the caring nature of the school. The classes are small, the teachers are patient, kind and warm. My children love going to school daily.

I strongly believe in active learning, which engages students as active participants in their learning during class. They build their own understanding and their knowledge by doing more than listening, by doing things themselves. They must discuss, be engaged in solving problems. According to me, teachers need to motivate children to learn and help them be positive and empathic. They should propose a variety of activities, surprise their students while creating a reassuring and familiar framework for them.
