A unique multicultural environment             

Thanks to a multicultural environment of 47 nationalities, on our two Eurocampuses shared with the German school, our students acquire a deeper understanding of the values, cultures and practices of other cultures. Our families, teachers and multicultural staff come from all over the world, and our community is even richer and stronger.

We offer an education with in-depth language teaching at its core. Practicing and learning in French, English and Chinese is an integral part of everyday life for all of our students, thanks to our international environment and our language streams adapted to everyone’s needs (like the International Chinese or American streams). We also offer tailor-made support in French for non-French speakers.
