In addition to the International Schools listed below and within our directory: International Schools in France, you may also be interested to learn about the international sections within certain French lycées. There are 12 British sections and 7 American. In addition to teaching the French curriculum students are also taught to A level standard in English. This allows successful students to go on to study for the Option Internationale Baccalaureate (not the same thing as the International Baccalaureate). A full list of these lycées can be found at the CIEP site, the Centre International d’études pédagoguiques.

The same site has English language information about the International Option Baccalaureate
