Welcome to École Ruban Vert - International School of Gabon.


To provide a legacy in education which promotes qualities of open-mindedness, tolerance and respect for others, which will provide a best practice model for the future of students from all nations in Gabon.


To become Africa's most enterprising school, focusing on sustainability and innovation to play a significant role in Gabon’s and in Africa's education.

École Ruban Vert (ERV), offers a unique blend of bilingual, internationally focused education accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS). ERV is an IB World School, offering Early Years, IBPYP, International GCSE, and the IBDP, with exceptional examination results.

Our students secure outstanding results in external examinations. The IBDP Pass Rate has been 100% for three years running, the pass rate for the Bilingual IBDP is also 100%, and in 2021 our highest scoring student achieved 42 points. Students have the opportunity to sit the EdEXCEL International GCSEs, where again the pass rate is 100%, and 2021 30% of students gained the highest grade, 9.

ERV students are recognised for their capacity to lead, innovate, serve, to respect resources and the environment, and for their commitment to making a significant impact on their school and their communities. Our world-class, green campus serves as the backdrop for an educational establishment that aims to facilitate radical thinking and achieve high standards of education. ERV is a forward thinking school whose aim is to enable students to learn to manage the future in a creative and sustainable way.

A programme of scholarships enables local Gabonese students accessibility to top-class education alongside children from diverse national and international backgrounds.

Our campus is a microscopic example of Gabon itself with every tree and shrub of Gabon planted within the campus. We believe it is one of the most beautiful in Africa with streams, bridges, green play areas and wildlife in abundance. Outstanding facilities include an auditorium, computer suites, gymnasium, library, music performance spaces, science labs and international sports stadium. We offer musical instrument tuition, Royal College of Music Examinations, yoga, ballet, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and our Tennis Academy is the best in Libreville. ERV hosts the Moabi Festival, a celebration of local culture and the Gabon International Open Tennis Tournament.
