College education consists of four years: 6ème, 5ème, 4ème and 3ème grades and includes:
College courses are structured in disciplines:
Optional courses in languages (modern languages, dead languages, regional languages) are also possible depending on the school.At the end of 3ème (last year in junior high school), an important stage of schooling awaits the student: the national diploma “Le Brevet” (Junior High School certificate). It is obtained with the points accumulated during the continuous examination and the end of the year exams.
Schooling in high school has three years: the 2nde, the 1ère, the Terminale. At the end of the Seconde (1st year in high school), which is general, common to all students, a choice must be made among the three series of the general courses that lead to the general baccalaureate, diploma essential and mandatory for the pursuit of higher education:
The baccalaureate certifies knowledge and skills at the end of secondary education and constitutes the first degree in higher education. As such, it allows the pursuit of higher education.
In Seconde (= 2nde = first high school year) : about 28 hours of teaching / week.
The new high school programmes are ambitious. They consolidate the achievements of the college, ensure the transmission of solid subject content and contribute to the intellectual training of students.
In the first year in high school, a balance between the various learning times is searched: time of research, activity, manipulation; time of dialogue and exchange, verbalization, reasoning; experimental practice and modeling activity.
In Première (= 1ère = second high school year) : 26 to 28 hours of teaching / week
The Première classes of the three general series ES, L and S include:
In Terminale (= third high school year) : 27 to 30 hours of teaching / week
They consist of lessons common to all students in the same series:
and optional courses depending on the specialty chosen.
