As noted in WSA's Hard Hat Tour, the hope is for this school to "introduce more 'global' ideas to the traditional French curriculum. LFJM principal, Thomas Dentinger, plans to bring in teacher teamwork ideas such as pair-observation, morning briefings to challenge and improve best practice at LFJM."
At this point, the school is limiting classes per grade level to four in order to "promote the development and well-being of students."
The new campus will include a 300-seat auditorium, a library. a swimming pool as well as additional sports areas. These will be used as a part of the usual school offerings as well as a part of extracurricular lessons.
The school gates will open at 7:15am and classes will start at 8am. Sunday to Wednesday, school will go until 2pm with extracurriculars extending the day until 3:45pm. Thursday is early release with the academic day ending at 12:25pm and extracurriculars finishing at 2:10pm.
Currently, the school is in the process of gaining accreditation from the French Ministry of Education. As the school notes on their website, "a request will be sent in September as per normal procedure."
School fees start at 36,000 AED for the "petite section" which is ages 3/4 and rise to 46,000 AED for "cours moyen deuxième année" which is ages 10/11. These fees include stationary but not textbooks or personal devices. There is an additional 500 AED Pre-registration fee as well as a 5,000 AED First Registration Fee.
