School Trips

As an international school, it is important to us to give our students the opportunity to explore Paris, France and other countries.  As such, we organize three different kinds of trips for our students.

 

Field trips

Our students go on an average of three field trips within Paris per year.  They may visit one of Paris’ many museums or monuments, or attend a play or concert.  Paris is a wealth of culture and we want our students to explore as much as they can.

 

Integration trip

As an international school we welcome many new students to school each September. In order to help them transition into the school and better integrate, we regularly send our students from Grade 1 on a week-long orientation trip.  This trip allows students the time to bond with their classmates and teachers while exploring a region they may not otherwise get to visit. They spend the week doing sport and cultural activities and making new friends. Past destinations have included the Normandy D-Day beaches, lake Annecy, or the port city of Saint Malo.

Our Kindergarten students may also participate in an optional 3-day farm trip at the end of the school year.

 

International trips

As part of the Globeducate network of schools, our students have many opportunities to participate in Globeducate events at our sister schools in Europe.  Every year, we send students to the music festival, academic olympics, olympic games and model UN conference.  Past destinations have included Spain, Italy and Portugal.  Students on these trips typically enjoy added cultural exposure by staying with host families.

Additionally, those high school students active in Model UN typically attend one conference in Europe and one further abroad.   In past years we have sent students to Philadelphia, Boston, Cambridge, Beijing, New York, Prague and Tangiers.
