public High School of the Paris City Hall
Established by the Paris City
Hall, the LMA, Municipal High School for Adults does not have any
equivalent in France based on its unique educational format.
As a public institution, placed under the
banner of secularism and equal opportunity, access is not subject to
revenue conditions or any entrance examination. Level tests are
organised to determine which class, between 10th, 11th and 12th grades,
the applicant should attend. The low annual registration fee
facilitates access (110 € in 2015).
The LMA, Municipal High School for Adults
does not replace secondary educational institutions. The LMA’s
education is intended primarily for working people who have interrupted
their schooling, sometimes for many years, and wish, for various
reasons, to prepare and pass their Baccalauréat exam to
reconnect with their studies.
The courses are held in the evening from
6pm to 10pm, Monday through Friday, September through June.
The 10th and 11th grades have a total of 20 hours per week and the 12th
grades also have courses on Saturday mornings from 9 am to 1pm, with a
weekly total of 24hours. The evening break time is from 7:50
pm to 8:10 pm and on Saturdays from a 10:50 am to 11:10 am.
Teachers are often certified teachers and
participate actively in the school life. They help students overcome
their difficulties due to their ability to listen, their expertise in
adapting programs and their ability to communicate with an adult
audience. Age, cultural and social diversities have the effect of
boosting classes while promoting solidarity and citizenship.
