About Collège Edouard Herriot, Luce
The Collège Edouard Herriot in Lucé is a school near Chartres (France) attended by about 500 students – aged between 10 and 16 – involved in a 4 year curriculum leading to high school. They come from the town of Lucé itself and from villages in the nearby countryside.
The school provides students with the usual French curriculum subjects, including mathematics, physic and chemistry, biology and geology, technology, music, arts, PE, history and geography, civic education, French (both literature and language), classics (Latin) and foreign languages. Besides English, students can choose to study German or Spanish as second foreign languages. Some of them even join European classes – which imply an extra 2 hours of English or Spanish and PE lessons also taught in the foreign language. These students often take part in linguistic exchanges or school trips abroad.
The school project adopted a few years ago decided to get the school focused on ecology and sustainable development. Many classes have been involved in various actions connected to these issues ever since that time. Each year, eco-prefects are appointed among students and the school has even been awarded prizes for its eco-friendly policies and projects (fighting against the waste of food or water; collecting rain water; organizing compost for the school grounds…)
The school is also working on careers, helping students to choose their future studies. It involves counseling and inviting professional people who come and present their jobs to classes.
Other actions promote citizenship and aim to prevent addictions or risky behaviours through awareness campaigns (driving rules and risks, health and sexuality…)
