Mission & Vision


Formerly known as EIB - The Victor Hugo School, ICS Paris is an international school in Paris, hosting students from Nursery to Grade 12 in the heart of the 15th district. With a small-class policy, ICS Paris welcomes over 600 students from 70 different nationalities and educational backgrounds. With more than 30 years of experience in education, ICS Paris is a well-known international institution in Paris, unique because of its tailored English-speaking curriculum, enhanced by compulsory French lessons from the age of three.


ICS Paris is a truly international school embracing international culture through its programmes and international opportunities.


The best international school for your child

Our expertise allows children who have not yet mastered English or French to join the school at any time during the year. With a majority of children from expatriate families, ICS Paris does its utmost to ensure an easy transition for students from international backgrounds as they integrate into our school. From Grade 1, we organise a week-long trip to a different French region, where students not only have the opportunity to discover French culture and traditions, but also to build close bonds with their classmates and teachers.

Our international education system

To promote the integration of our new students, we also offer, on a case-by-case basis, Intensive English lessons and learning support. In addition to English and French, students whose native language is Japanese or Korean can also benefit from mother-tongue language classes (extracurricular). As an inclusive school, we are proud to welcome students of all academic levels and encourage them to succeed.
