Full review by Patrice Quesada
Our three kids have been attending EIM this year in PYP 1 and 3. They have liked it from the beginning to the end - with a few highlights during the year, from the Halloween party and the end of the year celebrations, to the school race and of course the Play! They have been well supported by the dedicated team of teachers, in French and English, learning the basics but also important values that they will carry with them as we move to another country. We are very grateful for that!

My son attended 3 years in the EIM and it was his best ever school years ever. Great School, amazing teachers, wonderful staff. Just keep doing what you're doing... We will miss you so much...
I had a great time at EIM. I was comfortable at this school. The school building is very beautiful and classic. And because it's quite small, we can deepen relationships with each other in those small classes. I'm very happy to have many foreign friends. I'm very grateful to EIM.
An international school that offers bilingual education, dedicated and highly professional teachers.
Although my daughter arrived in the middle of the school year, she was warmly welcomed not only by teachers and classmates, but also by other students in the schoolyard. The small class sizes and an individual approach are the reasons why she has adapted very quickly. She just likes to go to school and feels very comfortable there. A very important part of this school is "life in the school yard", where students meet, play and relax. It is important to say that extracurricular activities are also attractive and of good quality.
Not many homework assignments and the IB program make this school a place where children get a quality education in a playful way.
My two children currently attend EIM in DP1 & PYP4, as a parent I’ve found the school to have an incredibly welcoming and amiable atmosphere. Though my children joined the school some months late, the teachers were there to guide them as much as possible. Looking at it now, they’ve made much progress and I believe that it wouldn’t have been possible without the supportive and persistent communication that goes on between the teachers and parents. The small class sizes have proved to be very helpful for my children to develop a better understanding of what goes on inside the classroom where teachers can assist the students more, focusing on each individual. The extracurricular activities provided at the school deliver the students a wide range of skills that not only benefit them academically but also skills that are required for real-life challenges. Both my children enjoy attend... read full review

We like an individual and at the same time holistic approach to students. Teachers focus on every single student – his/her capabilities and challenges to achieve the learning objectives. The EIM provides opportunities for the students to develop their skills beyond the curriculum. The school atmosphere is welcoming, warm and supportive. We also appreciate that children learn both in English and French.
My two children study at the EIM - my son Aarav in MYP2 and daughter Ayana in PYP1. They both enjoy going to the school. Especially, my daughter cannot stop talking about the school, her teachers and friends, and all the fun stuff they do at the school. What I have found is that the teachers and administrators at the EIM are true professionals who are serious, sincere and dedicated towards imparting knowledge to the students as well as creating and maintaining an atmosphere where they are encouraged to learn. The school equally promotes extracurricular activities and other forms of learning, in addition to the traditional way of teaching, which I think is very important to help students achieve skills necessary for their future life. The school also maintains an atmosphere where children from different parts of the world find comfortable adapting to the new environment, new friends and new system.
