French Minister André Vallini awarded the Label FrancEducation to P.S. 110 The Monitor School in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and its principal, Anna Cano Amato.
Created in 2011, the label is given to schools that champion the French language and cultures of the French-speaking world by providing successful French Dual Language programs. With 26 schools and 7 in New York (P.S. 58, P.S. 84, NYFACS, M.S. 51, M.S. 256, P.S. 133, and P.S. 110), the United States of America is the country featuring the largest number of FrancEducation Labels.
The first bilingual class at P.S. 110 opened in 2010. They began with 18 students and now count 175 in their ranks. Today, both P.S. 110 and its French dual language program are very popular. The school doubled the number of seats for students attending the program in Kindergarten and 1st grade.
