Welcoming expatriated families for over 20 years
For families, the choice of school is important and in some cases sometimes the priority for families arriving in France.
Parents and children are welcomed by native English teachers, while establishing a new home and becoming a part of the school community. Parent nights are organised to give families support and a network.
The families of our school build deep friendships that continue after their repatriation.
Montessori schools are more numerous outside of France, many children arrive already with a Montessori experience. This favourises rapid integration and success.
