Philosophy class in French lycees

It is my understanding that French high school students take a year-long philosophy course in the last year of the lycee. So what's it like in this course, anyway?

How do the teachers typically teach the material? What sorts of authors are covered? The Greek classics? Kant? Heidegger? Do they cover any of the Anglo-American analytic philosophers? How academically demanding is the course? Do students enjoy the class or do they view it as boring and irrelevant? If you took the course yourself, did it have any lasting positive effect on you? Would you do it again if you had a choice?
