Bilingual Schools in Paris

During our 3 years in Paris, our children attended Ecole active Bilingue, or EaB. There is a nice web site for the school here:

The school provided a good mix of the French public school curiculum with core subjects taught in French and solid English instruction. The math curiculum was especially strong. The student-teacher ratio was good and the school worked hard to ensure each child had individualized instruction if needed. Our only complaint was that the facilities were a bit crowded -- this was especially evident on cold, rainy days when the children were not permitted to have a recess. EaB has several locations to choose from -- we selected the one adjacent to Parc Monceau in the 8th arrondissement.

As you continue to blog about your family's Parisian experience, I would love to hear more about their school and their acquisition of French as a second language!

Hi We will be in Paris with our 3 and half y.o. in May-June .. What would you recommend for a pre-schooler as a place to meet and hang out with other English speaking kids? A summer programme? A short term daycare option where he meets other kids? Any website you can suggest.

I will be working and need some free time so would be lovely if I could find a place to send the kid for fun and an good experience for several hours a day every week for 6 weeks or so.

For older students than yours, I would recommend a new bilingual High School, based on the American High School diploma. It is called Notre-Dame International High School, and the school offers boarding too. It is for children aged 15 to 18, so grades 9 to 12. The website is

We have found a very nice school for our children, it is a kindergarten and primary bilingual school in Paris.
They are truly bilingual, they really teach 50% of the time in english and 50% of the time in French.
They have very nice premise with a private garden for the younger ones.
They as well, have a bilingual wednesday club open to all.
If you want to know more about their philosophy or discover more about the school, you can visit their website: or email me for more information about it.

I am looking for a nice bilingual school, with a good attitude to individual learning but also good ambition, access to green area (parc, garden) and not too crowded classes.. thinking of the bilingual school of paris in the 15th.. Isabelle, you seem to have experience of this school. can you recommend it? Thanks a lot for info.
