High School

High School organises lessons in to 10 key areas:

– The high school programs consolidate the knowledge acquired in middle school, ensure the transmission of solid subject matter and contribute to the intellectual formation of students.

– The programs allow for the construction of a common literary, historical, humanistic and scientific culture.

– The programs for scientific disciplines are based on theoretical concepts and train students in the singularity of scientific reasoning.

– They aim to stimulate students’ creativity and their ability to construct rigorous reasoning, to exercise their critical spirit, and to consolidate their civic education in order to become responsible and free citizens, aware of their rights but also of their duties.

– In modern languages, while consolidating their linguistic and communication skills, students deepen their knowledge of the geographical and cultural areas of the languages they are learning.

– The teaching of economic and social sciences, common to all students in seconde, and then in specialization, allows students to consolidate the microeconomic approaches necessary to understand the fundamental mechanisms of the economy.

– A new place for digital technology. “Digital sciences and technology” in 10th grade allows students to grasp the concepts of digital sciences, to understand the growing importance of digital technology and the major impacts it has on human practices.

– Some courses offer new multidisciplinary approaches: the common science course in Première, the speciality courses “Humanities, literature and philosophy”, “History, geopolitics, political science”.

– The programs give a new place to the mastery of language and the development of oral skills, notably through the practice of argumentation.

– The programs seek to establish a balance between the various learning periods: time for research, activity, and manipulation; time for dialogue and exchange, verbalization, and reasoning; experimental practice and modeling activities.
