Lycee Français is planning a presentation on their planned school building at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2. The meeting will be held under the covered walkway on the old Ravenswood Hospital campus, on the block of 1900 W. Wilson Ave.

According to Larry Van Dyke, the school’s Director of Advancement, the meeting will include a presentation on demolition and construction plans as well as a opportunity for residents to provide feedback.

Speakers will include the Lycee Francais’ president, Alain Weber, school chairman Miles McKie, Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) parents involved in the school’s development and the school’s architects, Krueck + Sexton.

Last month the school began to distribute renderings of the proposed new facility to prospective parents, and in May the school presented proposed architectural drawings in a preliminary City Council Zoning Committee hearing.

Lycée Français de Chicago, a private preparatory school with 558 students, follows the French National Curriculum with grades Pre-K to 12th grade. The school is currently housed in Uptown at 613 W. Bittersweet Pl. Tuition, not including books, lunch and other expenses, is currently $14,700 per year.

    So does this mean that the zoning for this has been approved?

      No, it has not. This is a preliminary step.
