The International School of Nantes opens in September 2017

In September 2017, the International School of Nantes (ISN) will offer bilingual, personalised education.

ISN is a 100% bilingual French and English kindergarten and primary school. It serves children of all nationalities, starting at age 3 months at the daycare centre, age 2 in kindergarten, through the end of primary school. In all, 150 students will attend the school located at 15 rue Olympe de Gouges in Saint-Herblain.

A different vision of education

The classes are bilingual (50% in French and 50% in English), taught by qualified, native speakers. In French, the school follows the French national education program, and in English, the official British program. The classes will include instruction in different subjects such as philosophy. Class sizes will be kept small in order to promote individualised teaching methods.

ISN features a makerspace, a yoga, dance and judo room, a motor skills room, an art room and a 2-hectare forest. The school’s mission is to help the children develop the knowledge, know-how and interpersonal skills that the global citizens of the future will need.

School starts September 4, 2017

The school is in session 4 days per week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and provides activities for children at a "Happy Club” on Wednesdays as well as every other week during the school holidays. And in order to facilitate things for parents, ISN offers a school bus service, whose route will be determined based on needs of the families.

The school office is staffed every Wednesday from 2.00 to 6.00 pm, and appointments can be scheduled with the director, Nathalie Paulin. The staff can be reached by email at
