Curriculum:

Image of International American School in ParisAmerican Section students get the full benefit of an excellent French public school education. In addition they spend 6-8 hours a week receiving US grade-equivalent instruction.

- US Curriculum: American or Canadian teachers using American textbooks and teaching methods work closely with all American Section students and support them in their extracurricular as well as academic endeavors. Language and literature, history and social sciences are taught in English and adapted to requirements of the American educational system. The American Section of the Lycée International uses standardized testing to measure achievements relative to schools in the US and students typically reintegrate at their appropriate grade level.

- French Curriculum: French language and literature, geography, math and sciences, are taught in French by certified teachers, and follow the French national curriculum. Considered one of the most complete and challenging worldwide, it prepares students for entry into the world's best universities. The Lycée International is consistently rated one of France's top schools with a success rate of 99-100% in the French Baccalaureate.

- Français Special: Not surprisingly, many American Section students arrive with little working knowledge of French. While these students pursue the normal American Section curriculum, the Français Spécial (FS) program gives them extra support in their first year by placing them with French curriculum teachers experienced in accommodating their particular linguistic needs. Thereafter, FS students attend normal French curriculum classes with the option to continue with French language tutoring as needed.

Teachers:

Our faculty members are natives of either the United States or Canada, and all received their teaching credentials there.
