Overview of the School and the Role
Open Sky International is a bilingual (English/French) private independent school and was established in Paris and Boulogne-Billancourt by a team of founders with a wealth of experience in teaching English and French to children. It has been officially recognized by the Paris and Nanterre Prefectures and Paris and Versailles Rectorats (local authorities in charge of education) as a non-contract (independent) bilingual school.
We are recognised as the school proposing the highest academic bilingual level in France and have been rewarded by the “Prix de la Francophonie”, which was awarded to us in January 2017 by TV5 Monde, the French-speaking international television network for French, Belgian, Swiss and Canadian public broadcasters.
Welcoming families from all nationalities and children from 2 to 15 today (and to 18 years old in 2022), the school offers the very best in French and British education. Our pupils benefit from an international education based on the British, Australian, Singapore and French curricula. Even if they arrive without a word of French and/or English, all our pupils become fully bilingual after 2 years at Open Sky International. They are prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing, highly competitive and global world.
Being a very fact growing school, we offer great opportunities for career progression for who seek it, along with opportunities for professional development through our CPD policy.
