Top of the class
The International School of Nice (ISN) has had an exceptional year with a 96 per cent success rate for its 2009/2010 crop of International baccalaureate (IB) students.
The IB is recognised in over 120 countries and opens university doors to students who gain a pass, as exams can be taken in three languages.
Run by the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry since 1994, the ISN meets the standards of the European Council for International Schools and the Middle States Association of the United States. The school offers a very low pupil-teacher ratio and a wide range of sports and cultural activities (theatre, graphic design, music, etc) to around 300 pupils from ages four to 18. It is widely credited with having played an important role in attracting international companies to the region as it provides an alternative to the French education system. T
his year’s graduates hail from countries as far afield as the United States, Iran, South Africa and Armenia, as well as the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Russia, Belgium and Denmark.
