Cours Molière – International School

Our History

Founded in 1926, Cours Molière – International School is a bilingual, independent private school, recognized by the Rectorat (French public administration).

The school was created by teachers who wanted a different, more challenging kind of school where teachers are closer to their students. So far, 17,000 students have attended Cours Molière.
Our small classes (15 to 20 students per class) are comprised of students ranging from pre-school (beginning at 2 years old) to Terminale and other preparatory classes for university (18 years old).

The Molière Spirit: Shaped by the past, creating the future

For a century, Cours Molière has successfully applied its classic and proven teaching methods:

  • discipline and respect
  • encouragement of good work
  • passing on important knowledge and fundamental competencies
  • a monthly Honor Roll rewarding students’ effort

A Classic Approach:

  • Teaching follows the official programs and requirements of the “Education Nationale” and often goes beyond that high standard.
  • Professors are qualified and held accountable for the success of their students.
  • Numerous cultural outings to museums, theaters, universities, etc. are organized to benefit and capture the interest of students.
