Joan Koenig founded L’Ecole Koenig - The American Conservatory in Paris in 1986 with a total of 10 students. By the beginning of the following school year, L’Ecole Koenig counted 100 enrollments. Koenig was quickly joined by Betsy Schlesinger, who becomes the Director of the Conservatory in 2015. Since then, the school has never ceased developing and expanding its programs.
Further fruit of this research, the Preschool for Music & Art opened its doors in 2008. The results of the program are exemplary both musically and linguistically. The Preschool for Music & Art, which became the Kindergarten in 2013, is so successful that a second campus was opened in the fall of 2013 and a third was inaugurated in September 2016.
Today, L’Ecole Koenig American Conservatory & Kindergarten comprises 400 students and 300 families.
After graduating from L’Ecole Koenig, most children continue their studies in International Schools in Paris and abroad (Asia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, USA…), continue playing instruments and participate in international music shows and competitions.
