A French bilingual and international school

As a French bilingual and international institution, our school occupies a unique position in the landscape of international schools in France.

French

École Jeannine Manuel has been under contract with the French state for over 60 years. The school follows the French national curriculum with the exception of the English, Science, and Chinese programs, which are unique to École Jeannine Manuel.

Bilingual

Our identity as a French-English bilingual school forms the central pillar of our school’s approach. We define bilingualism as the ability to express oneself in French or in English, orally or in writing, with native ease and compelling effectiveness. The school achieves this by providing students with rigorous and innovating language teaching, as well as with a complete cultural immersion. All of our teachers are either native French or English speakers, and a significant part of the student body have either French or English as their mother tongue. 

International

With students of 80 different nationalities representing every major culture and religious tradition, our school is a truly international and multicultural community. École Jeannine Manuel was one of the first UNESCO associated schools and among the first International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools du Baccalauréat International (IB). We are also an accredited Council of International Schools (CIS) and New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) school since 2014. Both are markers of excellence in teaching and international recognition.
