Our school is situated in Mareil-Marly, in the west of Paris, right by the forest. Our school has a large garden with a playground, swimming pool and sports field for the children to enjoy!
At FIS, we cover classes from Nursery (age 2+) to the end of Primary (in UK: year 5, in USA: 5th grade). Our classes are multi-level, with one teacher and at least one assistant per class for young children. Our pupil/adult ratio is 6/1 in the early years.
At FIS, we provide a rich and balanced curriculum which combines two recognized teaching programs. This ensures that the diverse learning needs and expectations of all our pupils are being met.
All children have twice weekly sport lessons with specialist teachers. In the Autumn and Summer terms, they also have regular swimming lessons with a qualified instructor. We incorporate the forest environment in our learning approach, using the outdoors as much as possible. Children are not only getting fresh air, but experience firsthand how learning can take place seamlessly through fun activities.
