Lycée Marguerite Yourcenar in France
The French Exchange offers students an opportunity to apply their French language skills in a full immersion experience while exploring Le Mans, a beautiful and historic French city. Students spend approximately four weeks living with a French host family and attending classes at the Lycée Marguerite Yourcenar, a public secondary school. Students have easy access to the center of the city by foot, bus or tramway. The area is a typical urban area in France, safe and full of restaurants, stores, and businesses.

Le Mans is medium-sized French city with easy train access to Paris, Brittany, and Lyon. Located on the Sarthe River, Le Mans has a rich cultural history that dates back to the time of the Romans. Le Mans also has a well-preserved old city that is replete with museums, traditional crêperies, and shops. An advanced level of French language is required for this exchange.

The Brooks School Exchange Program, founded in 1986, promotes the global education of students from Brooks and its partner schools in Botswana, Hungary, Scotland, Spain, France and Peru. By living abroad as residents in other school communities, our students are challenged to extend themselves to another place, another culture, another people – and, most importantly, to be affected by them, to be changed by them. We are confident that experiencing this transformative process of enculturation makes our students more empathetic and engaged global citizens.
