International schools on the Côte d’Azur offer a wide range of educational options to meet the needs and aspirations of families from all over the world.

ISN Nice

One of the driving principles at ISN Nice, an IB World School, is to shape ‘life-ready’ graduates. From Early Years to High School, students benefit from a future-proof education with a holistic approach designed to prepare them for university and beyond, with over 95% of graduates going directly to university, primarily in the UK, France and North America. A team of highly-qualified and experienced teachers respond to students’ diverse learning styles and challenge them through exciting and innovative practices. With an enriching STEAM curriculum, outdoor learning, university counselling and a dedicated pastoral team, ISN students flourish as global citizens. Over the past three years the school has undergone a huge renovation project including all classrooms, science labs, a STEAM Maker Space, outdoor facilities, plus a larger library, cafeteria and faculty lounge.
