1ere difficulties

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now”- Alan Lakein

When the students coming from Seconde start their different paths, they enter what is called “the cycle première-terminale”. From then onwards, they try to decide the course choice they’ll take.  Although, they are accompanied and helped by Madame Marchand and Mr Bonetis, as well as their head year teacher; this is a worrying and difficult path to follow.

Secondly, some of them face difficulties they hadn’t imagined.

Thirdly, a lot have pressure coming from the outside.

Lastly, the list does go on!

Depending on, for example, if it’s in France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, the United States or Canada.

We can find: Bocconi in Milan, Mcgill in Montréal, UCL, King’s as well as the prepa Saint Louis de Gonzague in Lille. However, not a bunch of students from Première consider doing a “classe prépatoire”.

A lot of students hesitate whether to reach for their dreams or whether to take a safer road. It’s a very enriching process, which the la Tour high school students won’t regret!
