An international school from Nursery
to Grade 12
The Victor Hugo School hosts students from Nursery to Grade 12 in the heart of the 15th district in Paris. With a small-class policy (a maximum of 20 children per class in Secondary and Primary school and an average of 15 children in Preschool classes), we welcome over 600 students from 70 different nationalities and educational backgrounds. The Victor Hugo School is unique in Paris because of its tailored English-speaking curriculum, enhanced by compulsory French lessons from the age of three.
Our expertise allows children who have not yet mastered English or French to join the school at any time during the year.
With a majority of children from expatriate families, The Victor Hugo School does its utmost to ensure an easy transition for students from international backgrounds as they integrate into our school. From Grade 1, each school year begins with a week-long orientation trip to a different French region, where students not only have the opportunity to discover French culture and traditions, but also to build close bonds with their classmates and teachers. To promote the integration of our new students, we also offer, on a case-by-case basis, Intensive English lessons and learning support. In addition to English and French, students whose native language is Dutch, Japanese or Korean can also benefit from mother-tongue language classes (extracurricular). As an inclusive school, we are proud to welcome students of all academic levels and encourage them to succeed.
