Lower School
Image of International Boarding School in Paris, FranceAt Ermitage, we understand that these are some of the most formative years of your child’s life. Our Lower School teachers are dedicated to stimulating the mind, building confidence, engaging intellectual curiosity and fostering mutual comprehension, empathy, cooperation, integrity and open-mindedness. We strive to guide and inspire each child to develop into healthy, well-adjusted and successful students.

This exciting learning environment attracts students and staff from around the world ౼ each with their own unique story, cultural background and level of fluency in French and English. Since becoming bilingual depends on various factors, each of our students follows a program tailored to their level of comprehension ౼ with the end goal of full bilingualism in English and French before 6th grade. At Ermitage, parents and teachers work together as a team to give your children the best possible start in life.

Ermitage welcomes children from all over the world into a highly-motivated, well-rounded academic environment. While students can join Ermitage at any time, many have been with us since Pre-K (Maternelle) and continue through 12th grade (Terminale). In our Lower School ౼from Pre-K through 5th grade (Maternelle to CM2) ౼ we take a more international approach to the French curriculum by incorporating English instruction

Middle School
Photos of Ermitage International School of FranceAt Ermitage Middle School, we share this ambition. It’s what makes our school so special. With a modern outlook on education, a positive, caring atmosphere and a talented multi-national staff, our students learn and develop academically, emotionally and individually.

We like to think of ourselves as coaches who support our students throughout their journey from childhood to adolescence. We help them develop the attitudes, skills and confidence they will need to succeed in the fast-paced, ever changing world that awaits. In an environment where students feel valued as individuals; where manners, respect and a sense of humor are cherished ౼ tolerance flourishes. When teachers make education both exciting and challenging ౼ a love of learning emerges. And above all, in a school filled with compassionate, confident, responsible citizens, and leaders ౼ pride abounds.

Upper School
Our Upper School offers diverse and rigorous academic programs including the French Baccalaureate with OIB (American option), the IB Middle Years Program and IB Diploma Program. Our goal is to ensure that each student can focus on their strengths and produce top-level results.

The IB Middle Years Program (IB MYP) and the IB Diploma Program (IB DP) develops students' critical thinking skills in a supportive learning environment. In preparing students for university entrance, the IB DP not only requires a high-level of academic discipline through rigorous academics, but also encourages students to ask challenging questions, to develop a strong sense of their own identity and international mindedness. 

French Baccalaureate: Ermitage is accredited by the French Ministry of National Education and offers a wide choice of foreign languages and an American section for the International Option of the French Baccalaureate (OIB). While the main language of instruction is French, the OIB program makes academic and linguistic demands to an equal level in English and French. Students who succeed in these curricula develop a capacity for hard work, and acquire an intellectual and cultural flexibility that gives them the potential to become excellent global citizens.

International Option (OIB) of the French Baccalaureate
: Also known as the OIB, the "option internationale" offers our bilingual students the opportunity  of demonstrating their high level of both French and English. The OIB at Ermitage follows the American Section curriculum where History and English/American Literature classes are held entirely in English.
