Overview

Malherbe International School was founded in 1990 as a private co-educational day school to serve the needs of the international communities west of Paris. MIS is located in the Yvelines (78) region, easily accessible by public transportation.

The school offers a rich cultural environment with approximately 160 students and over 25 nationalities. Children are aged between 18 months and 10 years. They attain high standards of performance within a family like nurturing environment.

During the past 24 years our ability to combine both French and English teaching techniques has enabled our pupils to move on to further education worldwide and adapt successfully.  

Preschool  classes (ages 1.5-4)
Our pre-primary (preschool) is divided between two locations, one in Le Vesinet and the other in Le Pecq. Classes are Montessori based and children are accepted at 2 years of age or 18 months depending on the location. Classes are taught in English, with optional French lessons for our 3 and 4 year olds.

Primary classes (ages 5-10)
Our Primary classes, at the Le Vesinet location, offer an ideal setting for high educational achievement with our small class sizes and individualized teaching. The educational program is based on the British national curriculum. French is taught as an integral part of our academic program from 5 years of age. There are two half days of classes from dedicated French teachers.

Spanish section
Since the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year we have opened a new Spanish section. This section is open to Spanish speaking children from 3 to 5 years. The classes are held on Wednesdays from 9am to 4pm, and are open to both students of MIS and students of other schools.
