Finding an educational institution that will ensure that your child has a solid academic foundation as well as build just as solid lifetime relationships may be difficult. This difficulty is increased if there is a language barrier between your child and those whom he attends school with.
Moving abroad places stress on both the parents and the student. And even the thought of weeding through the hundreds of bilingual institutions to choose from in order to find the perfect fit for your student could leave you feeling exhausted.
This would help.
In this book, we’ve outlined a few great bilingual institutions found in Paris and Ile de France. Each description gives a brief overview of each school’s high point, grade levels and focus to assist in your search for the perfect education institute.
Whether your child speaks English or French as a first language you are sure to find a program that will suite your needs.
Lennen Bilingual Schools, for example, believes it’s important to start your child’s education early in order to ensure a solid academic foundation. This school starts between the ages of 2 to 3 through 11 years. This dual immersion program allows French-speaking students to attend their classes in English and the English-speaking students to attend their classes in French. This allows children to learn through play.
For families who have relocated it may be difficult to find options that offer the quality education you desire while making your children feel comfortable in their new surroundings. At Ecole Jeannine Manuel, you’ll get educational options which bring together students who have the common factor of relocation. Students start taking French lessons as soon as possible and eventually began taking as many classes as possible in French. Students are also exposed to the cultural aspects of France to become comfortable as a whole.
Another featured school in here is the Sections Internationales de Sevres. Founded in 1960, this school is one of Paris’ first bilingual schools. Students who attend have either a French- English or a French- German school career. The school offers classes all the way from pre-school to high-school allowing students to build solid relationships from a young age throughout their schooling.
Another schooling option that offers academics from age 4 to 19 is Lycee International Saint-Germain-En-Laye. This school works to ensure that American students hold firm to their American heritage while learning in Paris. They also focus on self-confidence in order to build leadership values.
Established in 1954 the British School of France takes its students from an early age until university age. With over 50 nationalities represented within the school boasts of a very high standard of English education. This school is located in the suburbs of Paris and its charm reflects the charm of its surroundings.
Ecole Internationale Bilingue offers students the opportunity to build a well-rounded education by learning with other houses based on the same premises. This is believed to build both secular and bilingual skills while learning first-hand cultural differences. The academic standards are very high and they conform to the British, American and IBO qualifications.
