What is an international section?

Our Integrated classes are part of the French education system and are better known as “International Sections”. International sections were officially created in France in 1981 to provide for the education of students from varied linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Core subjects such as French, Maths, Science, and all other options are taught in French by teachers from the French national education system. In addition, students have six to eight hours of language, literature, history and geography in the section language with native English or German speaking teachers employed by SIS. This dual curriculum is a challenging programme. Students must possess a solid grasp of the section language as well as demonstrate a good all-around academic record.

We also have Extension Programmes for Preschool, Primary and Middle School. These classes take place on Wednesday afternoons and allow children attending other schools to maintain and develop their fluency in English or German.

At the end of their school curriculum, students may choose to sit the International Option of the French Baccalaureate (O.I.B). The OIB was developed as a special version of the French Baccalaureate, based on partnerships between the French Education Ministry and foreign educational authorities such as Cambridge. These partnerships implement and ensure the quality of the exam which is equivalent to a British A Level or to Advanced Placement. By the time they graduate, our students are well-equipped to continue their education at international universities around the world.
