A few testimonials from parents and teachers of the school…
I came to EBIHS after working in a small rural school, and I didn’t expect to find the same sense of family and community in an international school. The best interests of the pupils are really at the heart of EBIHS, and each pupil is treated and valued as an individual. We have a great, supportive team, and working here has really allowed me to grow and develop as a teacher. I feel supported to try new things in my teaching, and this makes my work very satisfying! Another great thing about working at EBIHS is that the setup allows me to have a good work-life balance, which means that I come back to school on a Monday feeling refreshed and ready to start the new week. EBIHS is a great place to work!

Being a part of the EBiHS team and community is truly a privilege. Through our shared experiences, the teaching team has become a close-knit community, a community who enjoys working together to push our students to grow, develop and learn. At EBiHS, thanks to the rich backgrounds of all of the members of staff, there is a culture of sharing ideas, best practices, pedagogical research and experience teaching in many different types of schools. Not only is this enriching in our own development as teachers and leaders, but we hope that it also provides models to our students of what it is to be a lifelong learner, to be flexible in our thinking, to seek out new experiences and adventures.
Emilie Tarraf-Lescoffier, Director of education who joined the EBiHS in 2020
“We had great reservations about moving our children at such a late age to France with very little knowledge of the language. Lily joined EBIHS in 2020 at the age of 14 it was a monumental change and one only exacerbated by the arrival of COVID. Right from the start the school were understanding and supportive, all the teaching staff adapted to Lily’s needs and allowed her the freedom to immerse herself in the language during all of the lessons. This gentle, nurturing approach allowed Lily to build her confidence, learn the language and in a non pressurised environment, in time reach the academic level of her peers in French! It was also refreshing to belong to a school that recognised the significance and despite the many restrictions ensured that the children were exposed to the arts, trips, visits and cohesion weeks. It was an incredible journey for her, she has graduated with a wonderful class of friends, an academic standard she should be very proud of and many happy memories.”
Melanie Wheatley – Mother of Lily (class of 2022) who joined the collège in 4e
“From nursery school, our children could experience a fully immersive anglophone education. The class size (no more than 20) allows for in-depth learning as well as better assessment by the teachers. We particularly appreciate the school staff members who support our children so well!”
Mr and Mrs Saltel, parents at EBIHS
“For our children, and from their very early age, we wanted an immediate access to and immersion in British culture and bilingualism, such important tools for their future! It has been a great pleasure to see the school grow from its very beginning. Bilingual teaching by exceptional and benevolent individuals as well as the values they provide are real assets in the life learning process. Growing in EBIHS means growing well!”
Séverine Petilaire, parent at EBIHS
“In 2011, we chose to send our daughter to EBIHS for its bilingualism and its kindergarten. Seven years have gone by… and here is the record :
She is a very happy young girl, who loves the school, her school friends, the teachers and the heads !
The teachers who taught Louise were all exceptional. They were kind, helped her in her development, respected her personality and adapted their teaching to her profile. Mrs Jager and Mrs Mondongou have always been responsive to our concerns through their professional and human qualities.”
Flore Peucelle Da Silva, parent at EBIHS
“Ten years ago, we heard about EBiHS and were immediately seduced by the experience of bilingualism, and the school pedagogy and philosophy. Elouan joined EBiHS in kindergarten and 10 years later, as he enters 4e, he is still as happy and motivated as ever. Not only has he become bilingual, but he has also been blossoming throughout the years, finding pleasure in being at school, surrounded by his teachers and friends. For us parents, there is another important element we found at EBiHS, in addition to bilingualism: the values that are essential to us and that are anchored and embodied within the school, i.e. respect, interpersonal skills and “knowing how to live together”, solidarity, benevolence, curiosity and openness to the world, the spirit of cohesion and many others… All these values have contributed to making our child a happy teenager, who feels good about himself and who is motivated and happily willing to progress and reach his full potential.
A big THANK YOU to the whole EBIHS team!”
