US to Geneva for 1 yr: public (Ecole Micheli-du-Crest) vs private for 6 & 4 year olds

Hello, we are non-French speakers moving from the US to Geneva for a year starting in August. We have 6 & 4 year old boys and are trying to decide on public vs private school. Based on the location of our apartment, our local school would be Ecole Micheli-du-Crest. A few questions:

1. Is anyone familiar with Ecole Micheli-du-Crest? Is it known as a good/safe school?

2. We were told that there may not be a class d' accueil @ Micheli-du-Crest, but have also been told that for 6 & 4 year old children learning French should not be a problem. But since we are only going to be in Geneva for 1 year, is it worth the potential challenges? That said, we would love for the boys to learn French and feel more a part of the community.

I know there have been lots of public vs private threads already, but I would really appreciate if anyone has heard of our specific public school. Thanks!
