6ème/5ème/4ème (FR) – Years 7/8/9 (UK) – 6th/7th/8th Grade (USA)
At IBS of Provence, we treat every child as an individual
and strive to provide an all round education for our students.
This middle school program at IBS of Provence is a bilingual program created to ensure that all students receive language immersion in both French and English regardless of their entry level to our school. We follow the French national curriculum so that students continuing on in the French system can succeed on the national exams but we go far and beyond the traditional program by adding sports, arts, music, chemistry and physics starting in 6ème, and a third language for those students who are already bilingual.
Students can also choose Maths and Physics in either English or French depending on their future studies. Class sizes in the Middle School are limited and students thrive by learning side by side with their classmates who come from all over the world. With 78 nationalities at IBS, we are truly an international school – not just a French school with a few hours of English – and not a British school transplanted in France. With over 30 years of experience, and a teaching staff with on average at least 10 years experience at IBS, we offer a rigorous academic program but in a friendly and supportive environment.
We try our best to meet the individual needs of each child and expertly guide him or her to achieve their full academic potential.
Our goal is to help all of our students to flourish, both academically and socially, and this makes for a very happy, purposeful and energetic school where students thrive.
