EFGB teachers are all native French speakers with teaching experience and are familiar with the specificities of bilingualism.

EFGB is located in 3 convenient locations: Cambridge, Watertown and Medford.
Total immersion: Instruction is exclusively in French (optional introduction to English language in Pre-Pre-K and Pre-K and is part of the curriculum from K to 2nd Grade).
EFGB follows the French National Education curriculum and takes into account American school system practices.
