Living School ParisLiving School Paris – Pre-School, Primary and Middle School for Eco-citizens

Living School is a private, innovative and bilingual pre-school, primary and middle school located in Paris’s 19th arrondissement. Through education and training, the school fosters the emergence of responsible and fulfilled citizens, who will contribute to a better world and a true evolution of humanity.

The three key pillars of the school’s pedagogy are life skills, eco-citizenship and parenting support.

Living School’s team is made up of 23 people, motivated by the desire to bring about a new way of educating, to inspire children to be happy and fulfilled and to contribute to positive societal transformation. They are working to share their pedagogy more widely and to establish new schools in France and elsewhere.


Most of their classes are mixed-age for pedagogical reasons, as it allows the children to progress at their own pace. They are able to advance with the older children on subjects they’ve already mastered, while also having the flexibility to deepen their understanding of other concepts they have not yet understood. The mixed-age classroom also naturally develops cooperation. During workshops, the children are split up into groups according to their age-group and level. There are half day outdoor classes every week and the children enjoy fresh and organic meals.

Recess takes place every day at the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. The children play outside each morning and most classes also go out two afternoons per week.


Living School is located in the 19th arrondissement of Paris with two locations near the Buttes Chaumont Park. The first is home to 3 multi-level classes, is located at 6 Rue Georges Auric. The second is at 2 Allée Darius Milhaud. They are also a training centre for parents and teachers.

    I’d like to suggest the Living School, in the 19th arrondissement. Maternelle and elementaire level for now, with bilingual teaching and after-school care. teaching is based on Montessori principles and focus on developing each individual to be environmentally aware, emotionally intelligent children.

    I would like to recommend Living School to any parents thinking of sending their child to a bilingual school in Paris. Our 7 year old daughter attended this school after 1 year of being in a french speaking school where she was not happy. Living school built her self confidence up immediately. She quickly made friends and she was speaking french within months. I also attended many useful workshops offered by the school which taught me great parenting methods to help my child be happy, curious and conquer her fears. I cannot recommend this school enough. All schools should be like this!
