Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, Education in Los Angeles, CA

Welcome to Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles. It is a great pleasure to introduce you to our world-renowned institution, one of the best private, international schools and the most well-respected college prep school in Los Angeles.

Since our founding in 1964, our mission is to develop the minds and character of our students. Children start at three years of age and we are truly blessed to watch them grow intellectually into fine young men and women on their way to college after their senior year. We are one of the only schools in Southern California to offer a full program from preschool to the 12th grade.

Our international student body and teaching staff, along with our superlative and challenging curriculum, make Le Lycée a very special place. I know first hand as I am a graduate from the class of 1979.

At Le Lycée, we encourage and nurture the personal growth of our students and create in them a sense of responsibility and the skills necessary to make a difference. Our students enjoy a wide range of classes. They are immersed in a program that opens doors and allows for opportunities all over the world. The school has grown by leaps and bounds in the last ten years and has fine-tuned its excellence.

At this point in time, we are the proudest we have ever been of our new curriculum, which allows children from all over the world to benefit from the classic European education as well as important current issues. Our emphasis on the arts, sciences, and languages is unsurpassed. We can definitely state that the International School Program is every bit as challenging as the French Program, and culminate with either the Classic Baccalaureate, the Franco-American Baccalaureate, and/or the Capstone.

Our state-of-the-art new high school campus, The Raymond and Esther Kabbaz High School in West Los Angeles, named for our founders, opened in the Fall of 2009. This incredible space includes multiple new openings for good students from prominent middle schools in our area. Our school is perfect for your children and this is definitely the most exciting moment in the life of this extraordinary institution. I invite you to look into our core curriculum.

Flower Art, Florists in Los Angeles, CA

From its earliest beginnings at the Fred Segal Cafe on Melrose in the mid-1980s – and with hundreds of television, movie and commercial credits to its name – Flower Art has established itself as one of the premier resources in the industry. Longtime members of the Set Decorators Society of America (SDSA), we have been privileged to work with many of the finest set decorators, art directors, property masters, and buyers in the business. At our design studio, conveniently located in Hollywood near The Grove, we have an extensive inventory – available for purchase or rental – of flowers (fresh and silk), plants, planters, pottery, vases, pedestals, et.al., to accommodate all of your floral set design needs.

About Mark
Ever since his Aunt Tootsie allowed him to tend her garden when he was a toddler in Lutz, Florida, Mark Goins has been smitten by flowers, gardening, nature. “She loved her petunias,” remembers Mark. “She could graft anything! She was a natural born gardener.” It didn’t hurt, either, that his mother, Mary, was (and is) an orchid aficionado, with her own greenhouse. His neighbor, Joanne Osteen was another early influence. “She always did the flowers up at church,” Mark recalls. “It was her donation to the church every week.” Sometimes, Miss Osteen would let Mark have the old, leftover flowers. “I would take them home and make arrangements with them,” he says. He was 5 years old.

One of Mark’s first jobs in Los Angeles was working as a waiter at Fred Segal Cafe on Melrose in the early-to-mid 1980s. One of the co-owners, Dawn Pursell, always did the floral arrangements for the restaurant. “One day,” Mark remembers, “she got sick and asked me to fill in for her [doing the flowers]. When she got well and returned to work, she told me that everyone liked what I was doing and she asked me to take over for her. She knew that I wasn’t happy being a waiter. She said that she would pay me!”

Mark’s first job for a florist was with famed Los Angeles designer, David Jones. But, it was under the tutelage of the talented Dante Elia that Mark learned the specialized art of designing flowers for movie and television sets. He was further mentored by two set decorators, both giants in the industry, Joe Bevacqua and Audrey Blasdel-Goddard. Joe, in addition to his friendship and inspiration, taught Mark the business of designing flowers and plants for sets. Audrey, the doyenne of set decoration and then the head of the Sony Studios property department, graciously took Mark under her wing and opened numerous doors.

Today, after over 20 years in the business, Mark continues to be inspired by the challenges inherent in each new project, in each new set, in each new arrangement.
