Lyceum Kennedy Lower School’s program (1st to 5th grade) is a full time program.   As presented in our preschool, our curriculum follows the complete program from the French Ministry of Education and the New York State Education Department.  Students at this level are taught through the immersion approach.  Students spend 50% of their time in French and 50% of their time in English.  Through our harmonized curriculum, students acquire excellent reading and writing skills, encounter the basic concepts of math and science and to become better thinkers. By using this immersion approach, our student experience success in all subject areas and encouraged to become life-long learners.  Students who complete our Lower School program are well-prepared for the challenges of Middle School.


The goal of our Lower School program is for every student to become independent learners and achieve individual success, as well as develop and demonstrate a sense of being responsible for themselves and others.

Starting 2018-2019 academic year, from Kindergarten to 5th grade, MAP Growth assessment will be used to assess students’ academic level.  MAP Growth measures what students know and informs what they are ready to learn next.
