The French college Marc Chagall is an institution that follows French education programs in its entirety. The inclusive pedagogy that is implemented by the teams is part of a school project, developed in a constant dialogue that brings together the entire school community, and voted in a board of directors.
One of the strengths of Chagall’s educational project revolves around the issue of mastering the three languages taught:
- French as the main Schooling Language and International Language
- Hebrew as the national language
- English as the second international language
The School Project is the roadmap for the educational policy of an educational structure. It outlines the main priorities that need to be developed; it declines their implementation; it defines the methods of evaluation.
Designed in a collegial way and in consultation with representatives of the entire school community, our school project is designed in accordance with the main orientations of education policies in France and in the AEFE network. It aims to provide the best possible education for the pupils. To make every child a fulfilled and confident person in his talents and knowledge is our common ambition.
