Mens Sana In Corpore Sano

At L’Ecole Française du Maine we have always tried to follow the famous maxim by Juvénal: “Mens Sana In Corpore Sano” (“A healthy mind in a healthy body”), repeated by many pedagogues. The mind is naturally cultivated through bilingual education, the curriculum, music and arts. The school also offers a rich physical education program to develop healthy, balanced bodies. Through various activities such as athletics, team sports, swimming, mountain biking, cross country skiing and gross motor development in early grades, the children develop their skills as well as important values such as work, motivation, and a taste for effort!
