Ermitage International School
Welcome to Ermitage International School, a diverse, cosmopolitan community with 80 years of excellence in teaching students to engage, prosper, and succeed. Our campus is located in Maisons-Laffitte, a green and peaceful retreat just 20 minutes from Paris. This stunning, historic environment gives our 1,400 students a safe and beautiful place to explore, study, socialize, and flourish.
At Ermitage, we offer students a choice between the French Bilingual Programs and the International Baccalaureate program in English with a bilingual diploma option as well. These programs are united by shared values, a multilingual campus, and an openness to the world. We strive to build our programs upon an educational foundation that values curiosity, critical thinking skills, innovation, and ambition, so that our young scholars may be confident and prepared to take on the world of tomorrow.
We believe learning should also include cultural and athletic activities to help our students excel in a broader context. Whether a day student, or a 5 or 7-day boarder, each of our learners get to participate in a rich student life experience. Ermitage offers a broad range of after-school activities provided by various school and city infrastructures. This means that from 15:30-17:00 every day, students get to participate in horseback riding, golf, tennis, swimming, rowing, football, volleyball, and so much more!
Maisons-Laffitte: Your Home Away From Home
Boarding students get to experience French life in a beautiful place. The pedestrian-friendly town and green park space of Maisons-Laffitte offer the comfort and safety all families desire for their children, while still allowing easy access to Paris—just a 20 minute train ride away—and all of its museums, monuments and cultural events.
Right here in town, our boarders have access to shops, sports facilities, bakeries and cafés, giving them fun opportunities to connect with the local community, practice their French language skills and taste local delicacies. Being a boarder at Ermitage means enjoying the best of both worlds!
