VERNEUIL-SUR-AVRE, France, August 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

100% in the BREVET, 100% in the DELF for foreign students, 100% in the Cambridge Exams
An historic year for L'ECOLE DES ROCHES. Highest honour: Two winners in the General Competition
- The first prize and a special mention in the Chinese language category-
awarded at the Sorbonne by Mr Vincent PEILLON, Minister of National Education
"These results, even higher than previous years, confirm the originality and quality of a successful education thanks to the four pillars of L'ECOLE DES ROCHES: the quality of teaching, the importance of competitive sport, the creativity through art workshops and a sense of responsibility," explains Claude-Marc KAMINSKY, President of the School.
The teachers are passionate and attentive to students. They value progress, it is the guarantee of their success. Each teacher applies an individual methodology. The academic pace is certainly intense but balanced: two studies each evening, oral exams, continuous monitoring of knowledge and advanced teaching tools optimising concentration and efficiency.
The sports facilities, spread over 60 hectares, enable the practice of more than 20 sports. The creativity in the 20 clubs and workshops show each adolescent their own talents in all areas.
Learning responsibility: House leaders and "Captains" teach students the rules of "living together", based on respect, brotherhood, the desire to excel, to develop in all areas intellectually, as well as culturally and ethically. The "Rocheux" becomes the architect of his future.
They are safe, supervised, motivated and valued... 24hrs a day by efficient and caring teachers. The House leaders, true parental substitutes, supervise their school work in study, stimulate them, ensure respect for family values, introduce them to responsibilities, establish a warm, friendly, fulfilling and memorable atmosphere... According to a professor from the Sorbonne, L'ECOLE DES ROCHES is "a family and a state of mind."
Why do parents enrol their children into boarding school in spite of the tuition fees? Why such a sacrifice?
Parent's response: "We chose a pedagogical investment for the future of our child rather than investing in consumer goods."
But the decisive reason is the exceptional and reassuring supervision of the students. Firstly there are 160 adults on campus for approximately 420 students. All have an educational role, from the housekeepers to the Principals... Each student is monitored and supervised by 8 people: two principals, two School Education counsellors, two House leaders, a head teacher and the School President.
In the FRENCH FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT (FFL)
Students from over 60 nationalities have 30h of French language and 20 cultural visits. Gradual integration during the year in the primary, secondary or high school curriculum. They live in total immersion with their French friends. 100% of students received a Baccalaureate, in the Brevet and the DELF.
In PRIMARY they are oriented towards bilingual or trilingual
Priority is given to the acquisition of the fundamentals: reading - writing - counting - speaking. The teaching is reinforced in the core subjects. Conventional methods alongside modern education (computer, video projector, Interactive whiteboard). Six sessions per week of English, one of Spanish, Chinese and Russian as an option as well as numerous sports and activities.
The focus is on the acquisition of working methods, learning autonomy and the construction of reasoning. Numerous mock Brevet examinations, a preparation for the baccalaureate from the 3rd grade.
At HIGH SCHOOL
Priority is given to the demands of higher education: the training is intensive for first and final classes.
Thus, every year, for over a century, the school forms part of the National and International Elite, of future leaders with solid moral values who will excel, like generations of L'ECOLE DES ROCHES ALUMNI, in all political, economic and cultural areas.
