- Bilingual Classes at the Lycée Jules Verne:
At the Lycée Français Jules Verne the French curriculum is implemented in both English and French.
As the performance of each of the students is of utmost importance to the school, the bilingual teaching is adapted on an individual basis to strengthen and develop command of the French language so that they will have the option of furthering their education on a tertiary level in either of these languages.
Further to this, the school will increase education in English to the students that have mastered French to the required level.
- The International Option of the Baccalaureate:
The International Option of the Baccalaureate is one of the French ‘general’ baccalaureates with an additional international option.
The American Option was introduced to the Lycee Jules Verne in 2012 for the Grade 11 and 12 students for Scientific and Economic sections. It is the first American Option to be instituted in the entire continent of Africa and further enables candidates to obtain a level of English similar to that of AP (Advanced Placement) programs in Language and Literature and in History-Geography.
In France and abroad there are 24 other options implemented in high schools to offer the same opportunities.
- English Language Certifications :
In line with the school project focus area “language proficiency” the French school introduced language certifications for students and teachers.
The school offers certifications in English (Cambridge Certifications), German and French.
These certifications allow to evaluate the school language policy.
