International Schools in Paris

Update 30/07/2014

Many private schools are international schools that offer international baccalaureate. These schools may provide non-English education (e.g. Spanish, Japanese, German) that can help an expat student feel more at home. Space is often limited and preference may be given to students based on nationality. Admission and enrollment procedures vary from school to school. International schools are very expensive, but usually offer high standards of learning, boast smaller class sizes, first-rate facilities, and extracurriculars. Expect to pay around €6,000 a year in pre-school, with tuition around €15,000 Euros for higher grade. Boarding facilities are usually available at these schools, but there is an additional charge for this.

American boarding school in Paris
Hi all,

The Notre-Dame International high school is an American private school located in Verneuil-sur-Seine, just 30 minutes away from Paris by train. This American private school is established at Notre-Dame Les Oiseaux, a school which is well-known for its excellent education (one of the best in France) for more than 80 years now!

Notre-Dame International high school actually offers an American curriculum leading to the US High School Diploma in the French environment of Notre-Dame Les Oiseaux. For the most part, courses are taught by American teachers in English, but some other courses are also taught in French, making the students become very proficient in both languages!

The campus of Notre-Dame is definitely unique: the Château de Verneuil is located in the heart of a beautiful wide park with gardens and lots of trees… so that pupils can study in a real pleasant atmosphere!

Moreover, this school offers lots of extra-curricular activities for all the students! Many clubs such as Photo, Theatre, Flamenco or Jazz for example are available. Many schools trips are also organized in France and in Europe, in order to enable students to discover various cultures.

Notre-Dame International high school’s boarding quarters’ and host families’ options are also an asset, above all for international students living far away. Host families enable them to get fully immersed in the French culture.

For further details feel free to contact me or have a look at their Website (nisparis.com)!

Cheers!

Lycée Collège International Honoré de Balzac
In your text you claim: "International schools offer the same education provided in the child's home country." However quite a few of the schools you mention are uncontracted private schools (écoles privées hors contrat) which do not follow the French curriculum.

You have forgotten to mention the Lycée Collège International Honoré de Balzac which is the only free state international school in the Paris region.
