THE HIGH SCHOOL
CLASSES IN 2nd GRADE
This is the year in which Saint Martin prepares its students for the Baccalaureat and their applications in the Higher Education system (Business schools, medical studies etc).
There are 6 classes of 2nd grade students including the European class. Students in the European class are taught maths lessons, in English.
2nd grade in Saint Martin de France is the starting block from which to prepare a successful outcome in Terminal, the final year in lycee.
Throughout this year, pupils discover new subjects and a more interactive approach to their work. The students can choose subjects to reinforce their interests and intended future study. However, they can also be a means to open new horizons.
A work experience placement is organised, for one week, for all 2nd grade students, with the aim of helping them discover the world of work.
