Lycée International Montessori
Lycée International Montessori is the largest Montessori school in France. It is a private school, pre-kindergarten through grade 12 that offers an international educational program to students of all nationalities. It is located 20 km to the west from Paris.
The Lower school (nursery, primary-5) offers a bilingual Montessori education with an English teacher in the morning and a French teacher in the afternoon. All teachers are Montessori trained. The classes are small and we use a style of teaching where each child is in control of his own learning process.
The Middle and Upper schools propose a bilingual program of instruction in French and English within the French national curriculum. Students can study history, language and literature in English (six to eight hours a week by teachers whose mother tongue is English), as well as other languages (Spanish and Chinese).
Exams offered :
SAT 1 & 2,
I.G.C.S.E (history, language, literature, French),
Baccalauréat S & ES
SCHOOL YEAR AND SCHOOL DAY
The school makes every effort to integrate new students and every year welcomes children who speak neither English nor French. Tailor-made (even one-to-one) classes for non French speaking students, enabling them to master French (or English) very quickly, without ever experiencing a feeling of failure.
Many sports and a range of artistic activities. Highly qualified teachers always ready to listen to the students. Parents are encouraged to take part in school life.
Adrien d Esclaibes, the headmaster, is a Harvard Graduate (MCRP 78).
