Montpellier, France’s 7th city, has grown a lot in size in recent years.
With some major research centres like INRA,CIRAD, AGROPOLIS, CNRS, CGIAR, and some multinational, the town has become a dynamic place with a strong presence of managerial staff, researchers, diverse middle level professions and traders.
In order to accommodate the educational needs of the children of this new multinational population, the EPBI has regularly increased its capacity to welcome new students.
Projects to expand are ongoing and new classrooms are being built.
Created in 1988 (with full official approval from the State for classes CM1-CM2), The Private International Bilingual School (EPBI – Ecole Privée Bilingue Internationale) caters for pupils at the Kinder, Primary and Secondary levels in accordance with the National Education Curriculum.
It offers a bilingual education through to the end of the 3ème and then offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to the sixth form pupils.
The school is also an official Cambridge exam preparation centre for pupils aged 7-18 years.
EPBI welcomes all pupils from all backgrounds to give them an adapted education for the students’ needs, without neglecting excellence and ambition that can be highlighted by our excellent exam results in previous years.
The active pedagogy and the implemented ways of teaching allow every pupil to develop their sense of creativity early and this also enables the students to become independent thinkers and future responsible citizens of the world.
This international awareness is increased by the wide opening the school has on the world.
The EPBI welcomes students from many different backgrounds:
– There are French students whose parents want their children to have a bilingual education.
– There are French students who have returned from a stay abroad (a long or a short one)
– There are students from many different nationalities, British, American, Australian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese …
– There are students who have completed a part of their schooling in a European School, a French Lycée or an International School.
The Private International Bilingual School is not only a school.
It’s a place conveying values and helping pupils to become responsible citizens of the world.
Excellence, Progress, Balance, Integrity.
