Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

École Galilée is a private international, secular school which provides bilingual education in French and English and whose program caters to the needs of gifted children.

Teaching approach of the school

Our main purpose is certainly to teach our students "know-hows" and academic contents, in order for the children to acquire firm command of the common fundamental knowledge and skills.

This is why Galilée School:

provides each child with tailored instruction adapted to its pace of learning;
goes in depth into the subjects of the National Education Program;
enriches the children's academic curriculum and basic knowledge by:
offering English lessons with native teachers starting from the first year of Nursery, including sport and discovery of the world.
teaching History of Art and practising Visual Arts from an early age.
proposing an introduction to Spanish and to the Chinese language and culture.

More than a rigid set of rules, the principles of community life taught at Galilée School are about "knowing how to be". Children need to feel supported in order for them to grow into responsible, committed, respectful persons, considering each new relation and any difference with the others as an enriching experience.

A strict yet caring discipline prevails in the school and the classrooms. As every child spends most of his time at school, faced with the challenge to learn how to live in a community, those “socially acceptable” behaviours, will help them feel integrated at school, and later in other social environments, must be taught at school.
 This discipline aims at explaining the reasons for those principles of community life and getting buy-in and support from the children. This is why the school timetable allows for a daily discussion time dedicated for the children to express their feelings and debate, with the help of adults, on the events of the day.

The kindness of the teaching team give the children the opportunity to find their own way in this environment and learn who they really are. They discover their own talents and get enough self-confidence to progress and try, make mistakes and learn from their mistakes. Our school wishes to show them a complete trust and unconditional support in fulfilling their dreams, which offers them the possibility to look confidently towards the future and dare to create their projects. This humanistic approach supports the students' discovery of their own identity and abilities and helps them succeed by learning how to tame and develop them.
