French Dual Language Programs in NYC

NYC's French Dual Language Programs in public schools are open to all families interested in the French language, regardless of their own personal backgrounds. Speaking French is not a prerequisite for Anglophone parents. Students in public schools are taught classes in both French and English. Subjects such as Math, Science or History are taught in French so that it becomes a language of instruction rather than just a foreign language.
