Lycée International, American Section France Campus

The American Section program starts in Pre-Kindergarten and goes through 12th grade. There are approximately 700 students enrolled, evenly divided between boys and girls and ranging in age from 4 to 19. Approximately 60 percent of our students are U.S. citizens, and many hold both French and American citizenship. Most of the remaining 40 percent are French citizens who have spent a considerable amount of time in the United States or have had American schooling.

The American Section provides a comprehensive international education within the context of the Lycée International, which is recognized as one of France’s top public schools. Students experience a unique hybrid of American and French curricula with particularly strong emphasis on language, math, and science. They also maintain strong links with their American culture while developing a consciousness as global citizens.

On January 10, 1952, the Shape Village School, predecessor of the Lycée International, opened its doors to educate children of employees of NATO’s European offshoot SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe). By July 1952 there were 150 students, and ten years later enrolment had reached 1345 students. At that time half of the students were children of military officers and foreign civilians who had settled in the area, the others were local French children. In 1962 the education ministry decreed that civilians could no longer attend classes which were financed by NATO, for liability reasons so parents of the American Section decided to hire their own teachers, creating the Association which still exists today. The Lycée International now comprises 13 national sections, some of which are Associations (i.e. self-funded by its parents) and some which receive funding from their home countries.
