The program at PS234 is open to local elementary public school students, with priority given to the students of PS234.

We offer French classes for Native French Speakers and Foreign Language Learners organized in level-appropriate groups. All classes take place at PS234 on Mondays or Thursdays, as detailed below:

FRENCH CLASSES – Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students – MONDAYS 

Kindergarten and 1st grade students meet on Mondays. Students are evaluated and placed in separate groups, depending on their comprehension and verbal skills in French (from beginner foreign language learners to fluent native French speakers).  Our teachers use varied age-appropriate activities including stories, creative projects, songs and games.

FRENCH CLASSES – 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Students – THURSDAYS 

Students in 2nd through 5th grades meet on Thursdays. Students (foreign language learners and native French speakers) are evaluated and placed in separate groups, depending on their comprehension, verbal, reading and writing skills in French.  To consolidate and enrich the learning process, students may be asked to complete weekly homework and reading assignments.

LA CLASSE DES GRANDS – 5th and 6th Grades Francophone Students – MONDAYS

This academic class takes place on Mondays and is for francophone students in 5th and 6th grades with regular exposure to French at home and a robust knowledge of the language. The class focuses on more complex language skills (oral and written production, oral and written comprehension), grammar and conjugation rules. Homework assignments are to be completed on a weekly basis.

CULTURE GENERALE – 2nd and 3rd Graders – MONDAYS

This class is open to native French-speaking students in 2nd and 3rd grades. Various themes of French geography, history and art will be studied.
