The International School of Nice is an accredited, co-educational, non-sectarian, IB World School, providing Anglophone education for the international community in the Cannes-Nice-Monaco region. The school offers a complete international education from Young Explorers (age 3) to Grade 12 (age 18). ISN Nice is a proud member of Globeducate.
The Primary School follows the IB Primary Years Programme, a rich, inquiry-based approach to learning that focuses on the individual needs of every child. French is mandatory from age 5, and taught on a daily basis. An EAL programme parallels mainstream English in the Primary and Middle Schools.
The Middle School is a candidate for the IB Middle Years Programme, with a particular focus on the social and emotional developments of students, as well as high academic standards.
The High School curriculum prepares students for the IGCSE exams, the IB Diploma, and the High School Diploma. Students are guided and supported to reach their potential in a safe and caring environment. A team of highly-qualified and experienced teachers respond to students' diverse learning styles and challenges them through exciting and innovative practices. Over 95% of graduates go directly to university, primarily in the UK, France and North America.
The faculty represents over 30 nationalities, and the student body is truly a melting pot, representing over 60 nationalities, with students from Anglophone countries making up ca.20%. This enables cultural awareness and participation in a globalised world for all our students.
The school year is from September through June with classes meeting from 08:30 to 16:00. There are a number of extra-curricular activities, including a variety of sports, Model United Nations, Student Council, and field trips.
The school occupies a purpose-built facility, which is undergoing an ambitious and inspirational two-year renovation project, with specific areas for problem solving, analytical thinking, imagination and creativity, and digital skills. This is in keeping with the school's vision to prepare today's learners to confidently embrace challenges as adaptable, empathetic global citizens who will be active contributors to a more sustainable world.
