Description Lycée Blanche de Castille Public School

The Lycée School of Blanche de Castille is located in the large city of Nantes (the sixth largest in France). The city is located 50 kilometers from the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, on the Loire. The total number of citizens reaches 900 thousand people: it is a large, developed city with a rich history, a lot of monuments, attractions and interesting tourist places and routes.

Lycée Blanche de Castille accepts both French and foreign schoolchildren (the latter from the age of 14) for senior-level programs, from 10 to 12 years. All pupils (1,400 people) are taught together, classes are not divided according to nationality. This approach makes it possible to intensify the educational process, give foreign students the opportunity to learn French more actively, to create a sense of tolerance and mutual respect in students. While working on various projects and studies, students learn to work with representatives of different sexes and nationalities, find a common language and defend their point of view - they become full, active participants in the international community, real cosmopolitans.

The high school in France is divided into two levels:

  • The College (grades 6-9);
  • The Lycee (grades 10-12);
  • The final step is to study in the undergraduate program.

The main emphasis in teaching in this school is done in French lessons, science, economics and literature. For foreign students, the assistance and support of a special employee and consul is provided. The list of subjects can vary depending on the chosen level of training (from the class), but the basic, fundamental disciplines are generally the same:

  • Mathematics;
  • French;
  • Physics;
  • The first foreign language (usually choose English);
  • The second foreign language (often Spanish or German);
  • Art;
  • Biology;
  • Geography;
  • Sport and physical education;
  • History.
