The EFAC community bids farewell to Director Isabelle David

Yesterday, the community of the French-American School of Chicago (EFAC) gathered to say goodbye to Director Isabelle David. After more than ten years at the helm of the school, and thanks to her utmost dedication and visionary leadership, “the school’s trajectory has dramatically changed,” said Consul General Yannick Tagand in his remarks. “Today, EFAC is a model of an original and highly successful development of a French school in an American context that allows students to pursue both a French program, in accordance with the standards of the French Ministry of Education, and a complete American program. By incorporating the best of French and American teaching styles, the EFAC gives students an incomparable experience,” he added.

Starting in January 2024, Isabelle David will be succeeded by Mathieu Cladidier, former head of high school at the Lycée Français de New York.
