A non-profit association founded over 50 years ago by UNESCO and the Education Nationale, SIS, Sections Internationales de Sèvres, operates within several French public school campuses in Sèvres, Chaville and Boulogne-Billancourt, on the western edge of Paris. SIS offers bilingual English/French and German/French education from nursery school through high school. An entrance exam is required to evaluate the child’s language level.
In addition to preparing students for the Option Internationale du Baccalaureat (OIB), the international option of the French baccalaureate program, SIS offers post-bac counseling for applying to universities outside of France and organizes many extra-curricular activities, including a lively theater group, active book club and school trips abroad. Due to the school’s reputation and popularity, early enrollment is recommended.
