American High School Curriculum for Grades 9-12:
Photo of International High School in Paris, France• The NDIHS high school curriculum is based on tried-and-true American curriculum which has been developed at St Paul Preparatory School, in the USA.

• Accredited through the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA-CASI), St Paul Preparatory School is the model school of the Nacel International School System (NISS). 

• Students must submit complete, translated academic transcripts for each year of high school in order to be considered as a candidate for High School graduation.

Individualized Learning:
• NDIHS places a high value on individualized learning, and maintains a teacher to student ratio that ranges from 1:6 to 1:20.

• Small classes allow for personal interaction between students and teachers, which enables teachers to focus on the individual instructional needs of their students, particularly on needs to develop their English abilities.

• It also provides the opportunity for students to explore topics of personal interest. 

Course Content:
• NDIHS offers students an American-styled high school education in English, leading to an American High School Diploma. Our primary education goal is to prepare students for professional success in the global community.

• Our curriculum emphasizes intercultural learning and the development of critical thinking skills within a college preparatory academic framework.

• We also recognize the benefits of non-formal learning that students gain from their daily interactions. After successful studies on our program, students will graduate with a US high school diploma, while being conversant in 2 cultures – the French and the American one!

Parent Testimonial:
Photos of Notre Dame International High School, Paris• “The atmosphere at the school is like an extended family- all the students know each other and care about each other...His current friends are from the US, Taiwan, Montenegro, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Syria.

All of the teachers that I have been in touch with have been extremely helpful and concerned, giving as much help as they can. He is very comfortable with all of them.”

"It has been such a relief to us to have our son in an environment that is competitive but that focuses on the student as a whole.

The mixture of levels and ages insures that all of the students can feel comfortable, and though it would seem that the different levels are a hindrance, they aren’t because the school is small, and the teacher/student ratio is exceptional. We honestly feel that the school's atmosphere is incredible.”
