LIFV middle school and high school
At the secondary level, “collège” classes (middle school), from the “6ème” (11-12 years) to the “3ème” (14-15 years) classes, are approved and include live teaching, such as those in primary education. They work exactly like middle school classes in France.
In “lycée” (high school), pupils can attend the general course of their choice from “première” class (16-17 years). Namely, ES (economic and social sciences), L (literature), or S (scientific).
There is a qualified teacher for each subject. Among them, some are civil servants from the French national education, some are graduates from French universities (doctorate’s, master’s, bachelor’s degree), and Lithuanian or foreign universities (doctor, computer engineer, professor). This diversity in the teaching body, combined with ongoing training and internal training, ensures quality teaching.
Le collège (Middle school)
The training is based on a set of disciplines forming the Common foundation of knowledge and skills, whose first two levels are acquired in primary school and the third level is validated at the end of “3ème” class (14-15 years). During their last year, pupils do an “observation training in a professional environment” (short term internship) and get prepared for the National Diploma “Brevet”.
The training is divided in two cycles:
- cycle 3, consolidation cycle, in CM1 and CM2 (primary) and 6eme in middle school
- cycle 4, deepening cycle, in 5eme, 4eme and 3eme classes, in middle school
Learning objectives, schedules and teaching programmes are set for each cycle.
Le lycée (High school)
In high school, students can take the general education stream of their choice from the 1st class (première): ES (economic and social), L (literary), or S (scientific). The weekly rhythm of class hours is similar to that of French high schools.
From the beginning of the 2019 school year, the reform of the BAC 2021 comes into force for 1st year students. The streams disappear and students will have to choose 3 specialty courses from the 7 offered at LIFV.
