Do students practice religion at the school? What religion?

Marymount was founded in 1923 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, a religious group of women from Béziers, France. Students regularly participate in all-school masses and our Catholic students are offered Sacramental preparations for First Communion and Confirmation. Our ethos is founded on Catholic values, which underpin daily life at Marymount.

How does the school accommodate non-religious students or students of a different religion?

As the oldest international school in France we have a rich history of inclusion and diversity, offering a warm welcome to children from a wide range of countries, cultures and religions. While the majority of our students are Catholic, we warmly welcome children of all faiths. Many parents of children of other religions and none particularly welcome the strong family feel of the school community and value the Catholic values that permeate the life of the school.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Marymount International School, Paris is part of the RSHM (Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary) network of international schools and is the oldest international school in the Paris region. The school was founded in 1923 as a study abroad extension program for Marymount College in the US. In 1930, Marymount became a French school and followed a French curriculum up until about 1972. In response to a growing demand for an English-speaking international school, Marymount took its current form serving students from Pre-K to Eighth Grade.
Today, Marymount offers an internationally accredited, standards-based curriculum to students aged 3–14 years old from all cultures, backgrounds and faiths.

Teaching approach of the school

Learning at Marymount is carefully designed upon a clear vision of what it is trying to achieve. The curriculum is partly delivered through subject areas but “lessons” are only one aspect of our students’ learning experience. An ongoing process of evaluation and the use of reliable accountability measures is a crucial factor in Marymount’s success.

The expected school learning results (referred to at Marymount as the “FALCONS”), follow on from the RSHM Goals and Criteria and are the mechanisms through which the school lives out its vision.

Within the context of Marymount's guiding statements its curriculum is a Standards-based one. The Standards are from Project AERO (American Education Reaches Out) and are applicable for the Core Subjects of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies and the school's Specials; Music, Visual Arts and World Languages. In the case of Religion and Physical Education the school has developed its own Standard-based frameworks in line with the mission and philosophy of the school.
AERO Standards are aligned with Common Core and reflect modern educational thinking.
