“Learning takes place once very basic needs are met . Children need to build trusting relationships, have a sense of safety and security in their surroundings and know that they are not expected to fit into a mould.”Johanna Bambridge

Educating for the Future
Marymount International School, Paris is part of the RSHM (Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary) network of international schools and is the oldest international school in the Paris region. The school was founded in 1923 as a study abroad extension program for Marymount College in the US. In 1930, Marymount became a French school and followed a French curriculum up until about 1972. In response to a growing demand for an English-speaking international school, Marymount took its current form serving students from Pre-K to Eighth Grade.
Today, Marymount offers an internationally accredited, standards-based curriculum to students aged 3–14 years old from all cultures, backgrounds and faiths. The school currently enrolls approximately 360 students from pre-school through to the end of Middle School, representing 45 different nations.
Père Gailhac, Founder of the RSHM
“It is essential to study the children with their own intellectual and moral faculties, temperaments, characters, inclinations and habits so we can know what is important for each one.” Père Gailhac, Founder of the RSHM
“Thanks to the partnership of the RSHM schools, Marymount has a natural connection to the global community. Students are well aware that they are part of a large community of international students across the globe and benefit from a shared vision that is so essential to the curriculum.” Council of International Schools.
Je pense qu’il faut quitter cette école en sachant que toutes les bonnes choses que nous avons acquises ici vont nous nourrir et nous aider à bien continuer dans la vie. Mon expérience à Marymount restera à jamais dans la liste des plus beaux moments dans ma vie. Antoine, Class of 2014. (Ecole Active Bilingue, Paris.)
