The French school program

In accordance with the principles of the French school system, the school welcomes children from the age of 3.

All children born in the same calendar year are placed in the same level or classes, with the exception of certain special cases (repetitions…). For example, a child who is 8 years old during the year “n” will, in September of this year “n”, enter the third grade, whether his birthday is in January or December.

The primary school consists of kindergarten, which takes in children from 3 to 6 years of age (3 school years), and elementary school (5 school years, from 6 to 11 years of age). Schooling continues at the middle schoo<l (4 years, from 11 to 15 years), then at the high school (3 years, from 15 to 18 years)
