Building Your Foundation
Welcome to Ermitage International School of France!
At Ermitage, we are working so that the most ambitious objectives concerning the development and fulfillment of each child are at the centre of our daily occupation.
Our Lower School (from Kindergarten to Grade 5) builds a solid base in the areas of both student competence and school life experience. Throughout the curriculum, the child is immersed in a multicultural environment that favors an open-minded approach. We welcome 27 nationalities at our Lower School location alone.
Bilingualism is at the heart of our teaching. The acquisition of a second language, while at the same time progressing in one's mother tongue, is the key for tomorrow. This acquisition is done gently and over the long term. The students are in an environment where both languages are mixed, during work and play, on a daily basis. I invite you to discover in the following pages all the various options that are available in order to have a clear vision of what would be best for your child (depending upon his/her level in each language upon arrival at Ermitage).
Our team of teachers is also multicultural and each teacher brings the richness of their country of origin. They all have professional credentials obtained in their country of birth. They put their enthusiasm, talents, and expertise to the service of the students and the school community. Our teachers know how to keep an attentive eye on each student whilst providing encouragement at each stage of their academic life.
We consider life at the Lower School as a journey:
A journey where each child can take the required time to learn;
A journey where each child meets new and different cultures which allow his/her world vision to expand;
A journey where each child has the responsibility for his/her own improvement;
A journey where others represent opportunities…
At the end of this journey, our students are ready to face the world's many challenges. Bilingual, curious, active, compassionate, fulfilled, and in search of excellence, they are the citizens of tomorrow.
So, welcome on board!
