Forest International School Paris is a private, bilingual and English speaking school in Paris west, at a few minutes from Saint-Germain-Laye with a very welcoming community of expatriate and French families.
We provide child-led and project based education inspired by Montessori schools and Waldorf-Steiner schools in an exciting, multicultural environment with children joining us from around the globe.
We follow a mix of the English National Curriculum and an international curriculum designed according to the latest neuroscientific research. We accept students from Early Years (2 years old) to Middle School (up to 15 years old).
"We're expats & wanted English language with an excellent French program, plus an environment where our son could learn how to learn... we found it here at FISP"
"We've had our now 6 and 8 year olds at FISP for 3 years, and we can't say enough about the school. The teachers are amazing, and the school location next to the forest ..."
"Outstanding environment and teachers supporting each child development pace and encouraging learning through creativity. Mindful parent association as a big plus"
We believe each student has the right to learn about themselves and be recognised for who they are, the different facets of their character, their strengths and natural abilities, but also the areas in which they still need to grow. We ask the children to take responsibility for themselves as learners while we help them gain the necessary skills for life-long learning.
We recognise individual talents in each and every one of us, which means that we all have a chance to bloom and be successful. The theory of Multiple Intelligences has been developed around this idea, and Howard Gardner is the reference in this field.
