Looking for a school in the Chantilly area

Post Posted: Mon Jun 16, 2014 2:16 pm

I have two young boys (aged 5 and 6). We moved to France 4 years ago so their mother tongue is English, but they speak French as if they were born here.

We're looking for a new school for them and feel that an international or bilingual school may help them keep up to speed with their English. My wife was looking at Montessori type schools as the older boy seems to be bored at his current school.

We've been looking at schools in Fontainebleau and Marne La Vallée so far. We stopped off in Chantilly last week on a trip back from the UK and we really liked the area. I'd heard that there were the types of schools that we were interested in in the area and would really appreciate any feedback on what they are like. Positive and negative feedback would be useful to us in making a decision which we really need to make by the end of June.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
if you are looking for a bilingual school in the Chantilly area, there is the Bilingual Montessori School of the Oise. This is very close to the station. I am not sure of the level as I have heard some good and some not so good stories ( as with every school). The ages of the children are from Maternelle to College level and it would be worth a visit to look around.
Another idea is to send your children to a french pimary school, so keeping in with the French Curriculum/ Culture and then sending them to APARC. This is held one day a week ( Wednesday afternoon) and teaches the children english grammar, comprehension and they are encouraged to read with the library books that they can borrow. The teachers are all Mother toungue teachers. They also socialise wih anglophone familes as well as French families from French school. APARC also teaches the children through College level and prepares them to sit the IGCSE English language and Literature. The best of both worlds.
If you need any information about either, all the details can be found on this website.
Good luck with the move and hope this has been helpful. If you need any further help, do ask.

Thanks for the very quick response.

I had considered sending the children to the BMSO and APARC but wondered whether that might be overkill as their English is more than acceptable as it is.

With the new school hours from 2014, the children would lose some activities on Wednesday afternoon with APARC, but I'm sure people are already preparing to work around this.

Thanks again for the reply.

There are never enough hours in the day to fit everything in. It certainly would be overkill to send them to both schools I think. Best to decide whether you want them in a bilingual environment or mix the 2 different schooling methods. I found it worked so well for our children to be part of the local community as well as having the anglophone community too.
Good luck with the choices.
Good luck with the move.
