Welcome to IBS Boarding
Boarding life at IBS offers students a unique opportunity to experience what the French call “convivialité”,with other students who come from diverse cultures, countries and linguistic communities.
Indeed, IBS has 150 students living in boarding homes from 10 to 18 years old who benefit from a truly stimulating environment of linguistic and cultural exchange.
Of course, boarding students benefit from a specialized program (with scheduled study periods both at school and at their boarding homes).
These study periods are designed to encourage self-motivated, independent learning – a skill which will serve them well as they go on to study at university.
The close proximity enjoyed between students of diverse nationalities fosters language learning and cultural awareness.
Responsible, experienced adults living in the boarding homes work hard to ensure a climate of trust, respect and understanding.
In this way, our boarding homes provide students with a friendly, family-style atmosphere – a place of authentic “life together”.
