The work we do at Le Lycée Français de San Diego as teachers, assistants and administrators is possible because of the support of our wonderful community. Since 2003, LFSD has continued to nurture French culture and excellence in education while growing from just a few students to an AEFE school with over 240 students. Thank you for not only believing in our school and mission but for helping move it forward.
