IPA exists for and with the participation of all the families who have kids in the French program at CGE, Sunet, Carver, ICHS and ISPA. As parents and community partners, we need your support and your involvement in the Association.

This language program is unique in the USA, and exceptional. Even without the financial support of foreign governments, MDCPS and the students are working hard to achieve excellence! Check out the outstanding results for the French Baccalaureate at ISCHS : 100% of the students not only passed the exam, but all with Honors. Same for the Brevet des Colleges! Congrats to all the students!!! They will attend Sciences Po/Berkeley (Dual diploma), Concordia University (Montreal), Edhec Business School, Miami Dade Honors College, Florida International University, Ecole Hateliere de Lausanne, Ecole Boulle (Paris), American University of Paris, Faculte de Medecine de Strasbourg, University de Pau.

Keep it up! We all got this together ! 2020-2021 school wrap up: We want to take this opportunity to congratulate all our students, teachers, administrators and parents for all the efforts they made to get through this year, they have never been more adaptable!

Bravo a tous!
