For all questions regarding this matter or related to the elementary school, please contact Francis Carlier, Director of the elementary school, fcarlier@sdfrenchschool.org.

Middle School

  • Educational Records Bureau (ERB). This week, MS students began taking the ERB’s CTP assessments. These annual diagnostics are not graded and not reported outside the school except by request. They offer students the opportunity to practice taking standardized, multiple-choice tests in a less stressful environment than future placement exams. The aggregate results provide the school with useful data tracking for tracking student progress. Students will take seven to eight subject tests (20 to 40 minutes each) on their Chromebooks over the course of the remaining term, using ERB’s secure app and supervised by Mr. Faure and teachers. Please contact tfaure@sdfrenchschool.org if you have any questions.
For questions related to the middle school, please contact Tom Faure, Director of the middle school, tfaure@sdfrenchschool.org.
