Forest International School Paris

Forest International School Paris is a student-centered school. In addition to mainstream academic subjects, we value distinctive inquiry-based interdisciplinary studies, project-based learning, social emotional learning and creativity.

Our aim is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to achieve his/her full potential. We strive to create a positive school experience where everyone's stengths are emphasized, as well as a learning culture where each child feels valued and respected, and where taking risks is encouraged.

We give students the opportunity to discover themselves as learners, so as to identify the possible gaps that have occurred in their education and help them recognise when they are successful as well as when and why they haven't been so in the past.

About the school

Forest International School Paris is a private, bilingual and English speaking school in Paris west, at a few minutes from Saint-Germain-En-Laye with a very welcoming community of expatriate and French families.

We provide child-led and project based education inspired by Montessori schools and Waldorf-Steiner schools in an exciting, multicultural environment with children joining us from around the globe. 

We follow a mix of the English National Curriculum and an international curriculum designed according to the latest neuroscientific research. The school is in the process of becoming an IB school.

We accept students from Early Years (2 years old) to Middle School (up to 15 years old).
