Welcome to our school, where students and teachers from all over the world come together to form a great, multicultural community in the centre of Paris.

In the Middle School section of ICS Paris, our holistic, inquiry-based programme is centred around the learner, allowing each student to reach his or her potential in an open-minded environment.  We aim to make our students great communicators. 

French classes are offered at all levels from beginner to native speaker, and we have an Additional English programme for students whose first language is not English.  Japanese, Korean or Spanish are offered as second language option.  In addition, students can take part in our debate club and our Model United Nations (MUN) programme including some overseas trips. The Middle School’s choir and orchestra continues to flourish and students have enjoyed over the years the opportunity to participate in the Globeducate Music Festival performing in front of an audience of over a thousand people. 

In a fast-changing world where media and information are most important, our Grade 6 to Grade 9 students are provided with iPads to develop their digital literacy, and Design Technology lessons take place in our newly-equipped Fab Lab, where students can showcase their creative thinking and their ability to innovate.

International events and the promotion of cultural difference and exchange are significant features of our school.  Through intercultural understanding and respect, educators and parents collaborate to develop balanced and principled students who care for each other’s well-being. This helps prepare ICS Paris students for their future challenges in shaping a better world.

Middle School is the springboard that leads to High School and the International Baccalaureate diploma programme. We strive to give each student the best preparation for the IB programme while giving them the opportunity to sit IGCSE exams.  Our school is currently a candidate for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.

We look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to the ICS Paris community.
