About this school:

highlights

Plus with established sister schools in Europe, Asia, Latin America and throughout the US, our students are part of an on-going global learning community that provides endless opportunities for international exchange. 


The Our Kids review of Léman Manhattan Preparatory School

our takeLéman is the only school in Manhattan with sister campuses in Europe, Asia and Latin America, something that speaks to the focus of the school. This the school provides a strong core curriculum while teaching through a broad lens, one that takes in the diversity of the city and as the world beyond. The student body is divided over two campuses, which offers a more intimate experience within each, though retaining a robust array of learning resources for both. The student population is varied and broad, with students from more than 50 countries. Together with the IB offering, this is a school that encourages an informed and critical approach to our place in the world, and positive forms of interpersonal, intercultural communication. In many ways, it’s an expression of the city that provides its context. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging, stimulating, and wonderfully diverse learning environment.

              Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

              What Léman Manhattan says: This information is not currently available.

              Approach:
              Mostly value-neutral

              By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.


              Fairly value-based

              Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.

              Traditional

              This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.

              Progressive

              This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.

              Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

              • Standard-enriched
              • Accelerated
              • Student-paced

              Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

              Flexible pacing:

              Flexible pacing style = offered
              Subject-streaming (tracking)

              Academic Culture Rigorous

              • Rigorous
              • Supportive

              A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.
