Educating Hearts & Minds since 1923

Our Mission

As a Catholic school embracing diversity, and in the spirit of the RSHM Mission "that all may have life", our school community is committed to the education of every student so that they may think creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively and learn continuously.

The aims of a Marymount education are manifold: to educate the heart and mind, and to provide for each student’s total growth, intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically.
Mother Marie Joseph Butler
Founder of Marymount International School, Paris


Last week Ms Miller and Mrs Le Gall, Marymount Pre-K 1 and Pre-K 2 teachers, spent the week attending a conference in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Reggio Emilia is an extremely important place in the field of education.

The educators at Reggio have been developing and refining their educational approach for over sixty years. The very first school was established after World War Two out of a desire to create a new approach to teaching and learning. The focus in this special school was upon allowing children to become independent, creative, and to think for themselves.There are now 78 municipal preschools and infant toddler centres in Reggio Emilia, and their approach is an inspiration to educators around the world. The Reggio approach is one that values listening, respect, dialogue, reflection, democracy and self-expression.

During this special week, participants attended a wide range of interesting lectures, workshops and most importantly- visits to the special Reggio Preschools. It has been an amazing week, filled with encounters and shared experiences with educators from all over the world.

« If we believe that children possess their own theories, interpretations and questions, and that they are co-protagonists in their knowledge-building processes, then the most important verb in educational practice is no longer to talk, to explain, to transmit, but to listen. »
-Carlina Rinaldi (1998)
