Nursery school

Mrs Laure TOURÉ, Head of school

“The nursery school is a caring school. Its main aim is to make children want to come to school and develop a love of learning so they can, gradually, become students. It is based on a basic principle: every child is capable of learning and progressing. Students learn: by playing, by reflecting, by solving problems, by practising, by memorising.”

Secondary school

Mrs Pascaline EURY-SHAWAREB, Head of secondary school

“What do our graduates do when they leave? Most study for a degree in France, go to an engineering school with an integrated preparatory class, or join the preparatory class at a business school. But some choose to study abroad, particularly in the USA, Canada, Great Britain and Switzerland. Finally, thanks to the French baccalaureate being recognised as equivalent to the Jordanian Tawjihi, some students decide to stay in Jordan, where there are several universities.”
