Our academic mission
EIB schools are dedicated to developing global citizens and to bringing people and nations closer together through bilingual education and an openness to other cultures.
Our academic mission is based on three key promises:
1. Immerse children, from preschool, equally in English and French, with half of the weekly schedule taught in English..
2. Follow the French academic curriculum, enhancing it with Anglo- Saxon teaching methods based on experimentation and group work. At the end of their time with us – during which they will have studied the Ministry of National Education’s official programme, with French and English as learning languages – our fully bilingual students will be able to choose between Francophone and Anglophone academic systems. Mandarin will also be taught for 2 hours per week, starting in Year 4 (CE2).
3. Nurture our students in small classes: thanks to a student-to-teacher ratio that is lower than the average French school. Our students will enjoy personalised support in class, which will allow our teaching teams to meet the needs of all students, ensuring they acquire the concepts and skills defined in the programme.
Further study within the EIB Group
After completing primary school, students at EIB Grenelle will be able to continue their studies at one of the two middle schools within the EIB Group: EIB College Monceau in Parc Monceau in the 8th Arrondissement or EIB de la Jonchère Middle School in the Yvelines region, 30 minutes west of central Paris.
