Union School Paris is a brand new bilingual nursery and primary school in the heart of the 16th arrondissement for children aged 2 to 11. They follow a double curriculum combining the French National Education programme and the English Curriculum in small classes of 20 maximum, with native English and French speakers. In total there are 180 pupils, divided into 9 classes. All classes are taught by two dedicated teachers working in pairs for core subjects (literacy and maths). There are several ‘floating’ teachers. Each nursery class has a nursery assistant.
Teachers are all dedicated and qualified. During the week the children also practise yoga, theatre, drawing, singing, music, chess, coding, sustainable, development with gardening, meditation, sport and philosophy. The school canteen or “restaurant” serves freshly cooked food 100% organic in a wonderful dining room.
The days last from 8.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the children go home with their homework done. With homework completed at school and a plethora of ideas for educational family activities, after school and for weekends, the school offers a wraparound service to enrich the children’s lives that also serves to make your life easier. On Wednesday afternoons, the Academy proposes an extensive variety of clubs and activities to broaden the children’s learning experiences, including support classes for those children wishing to improve their second language. Caring for the planet and for others is a thread running through all programmes in which the children learn civic and global responsibility, as well as ecological awareness.
