☞ READ: The Harlem French Charter in the News

The Daily News catches up with Harlem's French language charter school which opened up on West 120th Street back in September 2010.  Half of the students come from Francophone families who come from as far as Queens to get their child a bilingual education.  About 70 to 80 percent of the curriculum is taught in French but a lack of enough French-language books along with poor leadership has the charter under the watchful eye of the Department of Education.  Parents and board members soon replaced the principal and a donation of French books has given a new direction for the school which will be reviewed once again in May 2012.  Read more about it in the Daily News: LINK

On a side note, the building of which the charter is housed in used be a cigar factory set up in 1907: LINK
