Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

As an IB World School set within a French educational context, Ermitage strives to reach the following objectives:

- To enable its students to become bilingual in English and French and to acquire at least one other foreign language to the highest degree to which the student can aspire;
- To build the ‘international classroom’ where our students can learn in different contexts, from the academic to the experiential, and benefit from academic crossovers between the various diploma programs.
- To encourage our students to participate in our many international projects: exchanges, trips and link-ups with partner schools, international service projects, international conferences, Model United Nations ... thereby opening up their horizons to different ideas and cultures;
- To build a community of learners, no matter their nationality, in which each individual is a valued member and participant;
- To help the students develop the means – cognitive, affective, and experiential - to become young adults who are capable of establishing bridges of understanding between peoples regardless of nationality, religion, socio-economic group, culture, age, and gender.

Teaching approach of the school

Lower School
A bilingual education being one of the cornerstones of Ermitage, the Lower School teaches all students in French and in English. Classes are organized in ways to accommodate every child's linguistic abilities. Although based on the French National Curriculum, classes remain flexible and as such are thus able to provide a variety of cultural and educational experiences.

Middle School:
The Middle School years are crucial to the building of personalities and consolidating the building blocks of a child's education. Many opportunities are offered as students learn to test out and express their opinions and ideas through a variety of classes and leadership programs, known as "Discovery and Ideas," "Passport" and "Placitum." Students are placed in one of three tiers where the principle criteria is language fluency. The aim is to ensure that students foster their fluency in English, high academic achievement and a lifelong love for learning.

Upper School:
Students entering the school's Upper School section are oriented toward two diploma options. The goal is to ensure that each student is focused on his or her abilities and where each can produce top-level results.
- International Studies Program, including the IB Diploma Program, offers instruction entirely in English. Across the 7-year program, students are benefiting from student-centered learning, engaging in classroom discussions in a round-table format and practicing the material alongside their instructors. This facilitates a close community of reflective, open-minded learners.
- In addition to the Bac L, ES, S, the Baccalauréat français (OIB) offers its bilingual students the opportunity of demonstrating their high level of both French and English. The OIB at Ermitage follows the American Section curriculum where History and English/American Literature classes are held entirely in English.
