Student Support

At the Danielle Mitterrand French School of Erbil, we prioritize the well-being and academic success of every student. We are dedicated to providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where each student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. As such, we contribute to our students’ personal and social development by providing assistance, resources, and accommodations to help them overcome challenges and reach their full potential. 

Small classrooms

Our classroom sizes are kept small, and this greatly benefits our students. With fewer students, our teachers are able to offer individualized attention, catering to each student’s unique needs and learning styles. This personalized approach enhances student engagement, fostering active participation and deep learning in the classroom. Stronger teacher-student relationships are cultivated, creating a nurturing and supportive environment. Small classrooms also promote effective classroom management, allowing for focused instruction and minimized disruptions. Our students have increased opportunities for collaboration, developing teamwork skills and benefiting from collective learning. Overall, our small classrooms optimize student learning, well-being, and academic achievement.

Guidance counselor

Our full-time guidance counselor provides invaluable support to our students in various aspects of their school experience, offering personal and social support, creating a safe space for students to discuss challenges and emotions. Our counselor promotes mental health and well-being, contributing to students’ success, well-being, and overall positive school environment.

Aide aux devoirs / homework assistance 

Our school runs a homework assistance afterschool program to help our primary school students with their homework assignments and academic tasks. During these supervised study periods, students receive guidance, explanations, and clarification on their homework assignments. This support aims to reinforce learning, promote independent study skills, and assist students in completing their homework effectively. The Aide aux devoirs is offered by our teachers, and serves as an additional resource to enhance students’ academic progress and success.

Inclusion and Equity

At Danielle Mitterrand French School of Erbil, we aim to address and mitigate barriers to learning faced by students with diverse needs, backgrounds, and abilities. By providing individualized support, accommodations, and access to resources, we strive to ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to succeed.
