La Croix Rouge – La Salle
Devoted to the de La Salle tradition of education started by J.B. de La Salle, all the schools belonging to La Croix Rouge La Salle network have always been open to everyone.
We try our best to help young people live together in harmony despite their differences. Our goal is to help every student succeed so that each one of them may find their place in the working world and in our society as a whole.
Over the last few years, we have tried to be even more efficient by being open on the life and culture of other countries. Our school has organized cultural exchanges and trips abroad, at all levels.
We have started partnerships with schools and firms in foreign countries. Many of our students have done their work experience abroad and we have welcome foreign students to our schools. Being open to countries worldwide is not our only objective.
We also seek to create structures enabling our educational community to be in constant development.
