2 Types of Programmes

Our Integrated and Extension programmes are designed for students who are fluent in English or German, either due to their family background or from having lived in an English or German speaking country. Read more

Our Integrated programmes are part of the French education system and are better known as "International Sections". International Sections were officially created in 1981 to offer children from foreign or binational families established in France the opportunity to integrate into the French school system while continuing to be taught in their mother tongue. Children must also be fluent in French. Two subjects are taught in the section language: language-literature and history-geography. Read more.
