There are about 400 pupils in François Rabelais’. In France, there are 4 classes in the « collège » (= middle school) : « 6 ème », « 5 ème », « 4 ème », and « 3 ème ». Whereas In America, there are 3 classes : The 6th grade, the 7th grade and the 8th grade.

And the similarities Between French and American school system ? French students have more holidays than American’s : They begin their school year later. American students begin school as early as French’s, but they finish earlier than them (French students finish at 4:30 PM). French students take a bus to go to school, and so American students do. French students don’t go to school with their own car like American’s ; In France, we can’t drive before the age of 16.
On Wednesday afternoon, some of us assemble in the gymnasium to play basketball, badminton or climbing. This extra-curricular activity is called « UNSS ». We have a chorus too : At the end of school year, a show is organized with a different theme every year. We can also join the poetry club, the manga club and the school’s online newspaper club.
When the school year of « 3 ème » finishes, we have to pass an exam with various subjects : Maths, French, English, History ans Technology (this exam is also called « B2I »). If you pass this exam, you receive a diploma called « brevet des collèges », and you can come to the « lycée » (=high school). If you pass this exam, you receive a diploma called « brevet des collèges », and you can come to the « lycée » (=high school). American students have a party to celebrate the end of school, unlike us.
