Primary School | Forest International School Paris
In the primary school (5 - 11 years old), each child has a class teacher who is responsible for teaching all academic subjects.
Here we focus further on the social and learning development of each child. Students are expected to attend our curriculum activities for full days.
We understand that the primary years are crucial for pupils to obtain a solid grounding in language and maths. At the same time, we believe children should have an exciting and fun experience at school and develop a lifelong passion for learning.
"Success in maths does not depend on how many answers you know, but by what you do when you don’t know the answer.”
In addition, we follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for all other academic subjects: science, history, geography, arts, and music. This curriculum caters to 5 - 11 year olds and has been developed as a cross-subject enrichment programme and it is delivered through thematic learning units. IPC puts the emphasis on a combination of academic, personal and international learning for children worldwide, combined with innovative and exciting ways to learn. It has been successfully integrated by many primary internationally-minded schools that are also following the national curriculum for maths and literacy.
This programme prepares children to continue their education at our Middle School, within the French system or other international school systems abroad. The small class sizes allow the staff to cater to the individual needs of each child and to teach at multiple levels.
