The American School of Paris (ASP) was the first international school established in Europe, in 1946. Their mission is to provide a student-centered American education in an international setting, underlined by a philosophy of respect and responsibility. ASP offers the International Baccalaureate program and a range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses. It also has a rich technology, arts, and sports program.
With top-notch educators, modern and light-filled classrooms, state-of-the-art technology resources, spacious playing fields, two indoor gyms, theatre spaces, and a full-service cafeteria, ASP provides an exceptional environment where kids are inspired to learn.

INSPIRELLE tip: even non-member children can sign up for sports classes during the school year, and their holiday day camps offer a choice of tennis, golf, soccer, dance, English, and circus workshops during the major school breaks.
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.
