The Lycée supports special needs students from kindergarten to high school.
A group of committed parents, teachers and the school leadership team work in partnership to meet students’ needs. This group (EBEP) is actively engaged both in primary and secondary school.
At the beginning of the school year, the educational team meets each student with their parents and guardians to determine the specific necessities that will be required.

What Is Inclusive Education?
The French Ministry of National Education implemented a project to meet special needs students’ expectations and allow them to pursue their learning journey with serenity. Qualified and equipped educational teams support students, a resource and information center is available to them, and they work on developing IEP and PLP. These plans help students overcome the difficulties encountered.
AEFE directors emphasize the importance of including special needs students. Their inclusion promotes “openness, enriches exchanges and benefits the whole school community.”
