French Lyceum them. Alexandra Dumas is based in Moscow, where she implements educational activities under the patronage of the French Embassy and the French Education Agency abroad. The lyceum is focused mainly on French children and schoolchildren (up to 70% of students) whose parents work and live in the Russian capital. The remaining 18% are occupied by Russian students; on a competitive basis, children from other countries can also enter here.
Teaching at school is in French, so his knowledge is one of the main requirements for applicants. In addition to this language, students of the lyceum study and others - English, Spanish, German and even Latin. Russian is also taught as a foreign language. All training programs of the Lyceum are taken from the French educational system, which allows graduates to continue their studies at a college or university: according to statistics, about 90% of students in the Lyceum continue their studies in France.
In the kindergarten of the lyceum, children are divided into three groups of 18-20 people: since the number of places is limited, first of all the places are occupied by children who already have a certain level of knowledge of French. Classes are held from Monday to Friday in the afternoon - from 8.30 to 13 hours. The methodology in kindergarten is built in such a way that children can simultaneously study Russian and French.
When applying for a lyceum elementary school, parents will need to choose one of three groups for their children: regular, bilingual, or in-depth study of English and Russian. In elementary school classes are held from 8 to 15 hours.
The program is built according to the French program, where, in addition to languages, the emphasis is on the study of mathematics - children get access to the library of the elementary school “BCD”, from where they can take the textbooks home.
In high school, training takes place from Monday to Friday from 8 to 17 hours. At this stage, other languages are added to the program in addition to French and English — for example, Latin, German, or Spanish. The main course is based on a French study program.
In high school, a floating schedule: from 8 to 17 hours from Monday to Friday. The training course is based on the French high school program, which is aimed at preparing for the final school exams and the subsequent admission to the university (usually foreign).

In addition to the academic part, for pupils of the lyceum, leisure time after extracurricular time is thought out: children can in sports or creative sections and clubs.
Sometimes trips are organized for students: to the ski base in the Moscow region, to the cultural cities of our country and not only - for example, St. Petersburg or Rome.
