Parents wishing to enroll their children in the French education system will find a campus tucked away in Düsseldorf's northeast corner. The Lycée Français de Düsseldorf houses three schools: the école maternelle (preschool), école élémentaire (primary school) and the lycée (high school).
About 500 students are enrolled in this private, tuition-based school. While approximately 70 percent of them are French, there are quite a few other nationalities represented among the student body. Classes at the Lycée Français are conducted in both French and German. English is also a required language of study.
The school is an "Ersatzschule," which means that the diploma it offers is recognized by the German education authorities. Students completing their education at the Lycée are awarded the French Baccalauréat general, as well as the German Abitur. The school maintains an active partnership with the Luisen Gymnasium and the Görres Gymnasium. Together with the French cultural institute, they organize a music festival, a "semaine de la francophonie," expoa.m.sition and various conferences. The school also serves as an entry point for anyone wishing to engage the French expat community in Düsseldorf.
