BILINGUAL PRIMARY SCHOOL IN FRANCE
Our primary curriculum at Open Sky International France
The primary curriculum of our bilingual primary school has been carefully designed and is unique to Open Sky International. It includes the strongest aspects of different international curricula and a bilingual timetable is followed by all pupils.
In French, learning materials and the curriculum have been designed and written for the school’s own specific needs, and they help children reach a high level of language and structure in French at an early age. The school’s methodology also allows pupils to acquire a deep knowledge of the language to allow them to express their opinions, feelings and thoughts; they learn to do this using a rich vocabulary, and knowledge of beautiful texts helps them to do this.
In addition to academic excellence, our school prepares children for openness to the constantly changing world: we offer a teaching of the intercultural concept by accepting children of all origins and by teaching them the different cultures of the world. We believe that children can enrich their peers on their own culture and thus our teachers can support courses where each builds on understanding the other. The classroom is then a place of exchange and sharing.
