Cours Moliere

Our History

Founded in 1926, Cours Molière 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 nursery students (beginning at 2 years old) to the classes of Terminales S, ES, L, and other preparatory classes for university (18 years old).
