Lycée Abdel-Kader (or LAK) is a coed private school in the Batrakieh district of Beirut, Lebanon. It is part of the Mission laïque française efforts in Lebanon and provides a full cycle education from kindergarten to twelfth grade. All subjects are taught in French with language classes in Arabic and English.
The official site of the school is http://www.lak.edu.lb//
The lycée Abdel-Kader whose creation dates back to 1909, had been known till 1985, when it was bought to the Mission laïque française by the Hariri foundation, as the school of Young Girls, even though it had been a coed school for some time.
The school went through multiple stages of expansion which lead in 1995 to the construction of an elementary school which allowed it to offer a full cycle of studies that includes kindergarten, which accepts students from the age of three, till twelfth grade.
The degrees are recognized by both the French ministry of education and the Lebanese ministry of education.
Lycée Abdel Kader consists of kindergarden/maternelle (first 3 years of school, where kids are aged 3-5 years), elementary school/élémentaire (1st grade till 5th grade), middle school/collège (6th grade till 9th grade) and high school/lycée (10th grade till 12th grade). At the end of the 5th grade, when students go to middle school, the school organises a program where 6th graders teach 5th graders everything about the succeeding years at the school.
The establishment has the option for students to sign-up for activities for 60 000 LBP including dance,sports and choir, which has been free since 2008 when a new conductor (Yasmina Sabbah)formed 4 new groups : Elementary choir, Middle school choir, a group of advanced singers and a glee club.
