A benchmark bilingual lycée in Paris, renowned for its academic excellence
Located near the Place de l’Etoile and Porte Maillot at the heart of the 17th district in Paris, the bilingual lycée (equivalent of high school) EIB Etoile welcomes 400 students of more than 40 different nationalities from Seconde to Terminale (from Grade 10 to Grade 12). As a school with state contract, this secular lycée follows the French curriculum and is also enhanced by additional English classes of up to 25% of the school timetable. In addition to the French General Baccalaureate (S for scientific, ES for economic and social sciences, L for arts options), where we boast a 100% success rate and over 84% honours (high and first-class honours for 2/3 of the students), our students are offered 2 options of excellence: an international programme (British OIB), with English literature as well as history and geography classes in English; and a European programme in English. Finally, as with collège Monceau, our high school students benefit from maths and modern languages classes (English, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Russian and Japanese), which are taught in skill groups.
Prepare your child for the best higher education in France and abroad
Beyond the success rate of the Baccalaureate, our mission is to ensure your child is best prepared for higher education. That is why the bilingual lycée EIB Etoile supports and guides its students and their families to draw up a tailored educational project. Every year our students who have passed the Baccalaureate enter the best higher education organisations and selective pathways in France, including preparatory classes for the grandes écoles, Sciences Po, universities of Paris-Dauphine or la Sorbonne.
As over 40% of our graduates now choose to pursue studies abroad, we now also offer an exclusive counselling service (informations and prices) for students who wish to apply to foreign universities. Every year, we help nearly one third of our students to choose the best international universities, prepare the applications and attain the various international certificates which are required for entry, including Cambridge, TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, Cervantès, Goethe and Dante (Our Academic Partners). Our students are frequently accepted at prestigious universities worldwide such as Harvard, Yale, Wellesley and NYU (USA), King’s College London, UCL, Warwick, Bath and Bristol (UK), McGill and Concordia (Canada).
A fulfilling environment thanks to a wide range of extracurricular activities
Because there is a life after classes, our school offers various options to enable your child to fulfil their potential and optimize their academic record:
• Afterschool : supervised studies, in-depth lessons and preparation for CPGE (preparatory classes and grandes écoles), workshop classes, preparation for language and SAT certificates, topical conferences, preparation for the BIA (aeronautical initiation certificate).
• Extracurricular activities: the students are involved in many cultural, sports and humanitarian clubs (debate club, literary review, library or benefit concert, charity, end-of-year ball, yearbook, etc.) and student mentoring.
• Innovative projects: “Écolycée” certified (eco-label), participation at the Parabole 2018 contest in partnership with the CNES (National Centre for Space Studies), CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and ENS (Ecole Normale Supérieure), the EIB literary prize, and participation at international events such as HMCE (Harvard Model Congress Europa), YMGE (Yale Model Government Europa) and NACEMUN (NACE Model United Nations).
