Welcome !

National NIS or International NIS

2 sections of excellence!

Narbonne International School welcomes children of 17 nationalities, from the age of 2 and a half up to the age of 15. While all applications are carefully examined, the essential admission criteria remain motivation, curiosity and respect.
No prior language level is required. The teachers at the school will be able to adapt to your child's language skills. We respect the Common Core of National Education while allowing children to progress in both languages.

Whatever the course chosen, National or International, the school offers your child a privileged learning environment, where the values of work, rigor and open-mindedness take their place. Children arriving in Pre-school nursery are immersed in the English language and thus open their phonic ear, facilitating the learning of all languages.

The Bilingual Pre-school nursery will then offer them, the choice of a demanding National curriculum or the opportunity to join the international section, when entering Year 1. These 2 rewarding courses offered by the school from primary school, offer your child the possibility of opting for:

  • The National section which offers a rigorous education, in accordance with the classic standards of French National Education. The excellent qualification of the teachers and the small number of students guarantee the quality of learning. The "Cambridge preparation" is offered as an option.
  • The International section which also meets the objectives set by the E.N. and our requirement for reduced staff, offers an additional openness to the world. The subjects of Science, Geography, History, Discovery of the World, Arts and Sport are taught daily in English by Native speaking teachers. The optional "Cambridge preparation" (or “French as a foreign language” for allophone children) is the ideal complement to all learning areas.
