As of March 2007 the school had more than 1,075 students, about 50-60% of them being French citizens and the remainder Americans or coming from over 54 nations.
It is composed of the following campuses:
- Campus 55 (Preschool and K1)
- Century City Campus (K2 and 1st Grade)
- Pacific Palisades Campus (Preschool through Grade 2)
- Overland Campus (Grade 2 through 8)

In 1980 the Lycee bought the 6.2-acre (2.5 ha) former Parkway School property, located in the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance, from the Torrance Unified School District. This property became the Lycee's Torrance campus, and as of February 1990 the campus had 100 students. In November 1989 the Lycee sold the property.
