When you begin to discover what our school is all about, you’ll wish you could be a child again!
The Bilingual International School of Paris (BISP) is a private, independent, and non-denominational bilingual school for children ages 2 1/2 to 11.
BISP offers a preschool and elementary dual language immersion program that is in alignment with French National and English-based curriculum frameworks.
Our bilingual school takes a comprehensive approach to educating children, focusing strongly on academics as well as on their physical and emotional development. At BISP, your child will benefit from a solid curriculum that is taught by native speakers of French and English. Instruction time is divided equally among the two languages with specific classrooms devoted to each language. The curriculum is enriched and supported by creative and artistic activities, as well as physical education.
We believe strongly that a child needs to feel nurtured and safe before he or she is ready to learn. Our small class structure fosters close relationships between the child and his or her teachers and classmates and provides ample opportunity to differentiate instruction and tailor learning to the child’s interests and needs.
The teachers and staff of BISP help each student develop the self-confidence and interpersonal skills needed whereby they feel free to express their talents while becoming caring, respectful and tolerant individuals.
BISP’s small class size is unique in Paris and provides an opportunity to offer an individualised approach to each student. At our school your child is not a number, but a special member of our family. As a parent you become part of our family as well, with invitations to participate in our numerous school activities and frequent communication about what is going on in our school and how your child is progressing at school.
BISP is old-fashioned in the individualized approach it offers each student, and it is resolutely modern, bringing the best of 21st century technology into the classroom to engage children in a multimedia learning experience.
