When we asked about the schools in France, they said...

"Lycée International de Saint Germain-en-Laye (LISG) is one of the best international schools in France, located in the affluent suburb of Saint Germain-en-Laye, just outside of Paris. Founded in 1953, LISG is an English medium international school and is accredited by several well-respected bodies including the Cambridge International Exam Board, the European Council of International Schools, and the French Ministry of Education. The school provides a unique curriculum, with a strong focus on international exchange and foreign language acquisition. It offers a variety of courses, ranging from French language and culture, to history and global studies. Additionally, LISG also provides students with many extracurricular activities, such as cultural activities, theater and sports. Another great international school in France is the International School of Paris (ISP). Founded in 1924, the International School of Paris is bilingual and offers both English and French programs. It is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the European Council of International Schools and the US National Association of Independent Schools. ISP also has a strong academic program, as well as numerous diverse extracurricular activities like team sports, theater, music and even Model UN. Finally, the Lycée International de Lille is one of the most well-known bilingual schools in France. This international school offers an English-French bilingual curriculum and is accredited by the French Ministry of Education. The school offers a range of courses in the humanities, sciences, and economics and modern languages, as well as many extracurricular activities for students, making it a great option for both international and local students," remarked one parent with kids at in .

"Please think CAREFULLY before moving your child to that school as the Group who owns currently focusing on making money not academics, bare in mind that they also own (International School of Nice (ISN), ICS (named ebica before), mainly all the International private schools in the South of France. Doesn't value the money. Low quality of teachers specially English level is a disaster for a British school. Teachers leave in the middle of the course without being replaced except with online recording videos," explained one expat living in Mougins - Cote D'Azur, France.
