The Lycée Francais Van Gogh is a valid academic and dynamic School, with a very strong leadership and French imprinting. We've spent there 3 years as a non-French family and ended up loving it for the academical level, the broad curriculum to include a high number of activities incorporated in the daily teaching and its dynamism. Our daughter became fully fluent in French and excelled in her studies. Communication with teachers and principal is two-ways, constant and excellent and teachers are dedicated and with purpose. The environment is very cosy, however parents community is very French and, although nice, not necessarily at ease with English speaking expats.
Le plus étonnant est qu'il n'offre pas de repas chaud pour les enfants, malgré que les effectifs soient suffisant. Surtout pour des enfants en maternelle... Imaginez une enseignante aidant une classe de maternelle à prendre leur dejeuner à l'interieur même de la classe!
Sinon, dans l'ensemble le corps enseignant est tres similaire a ce que l'on peut attendre en France - les comportements et attitudes sont tres similaires.
