A small school situated in West Paris, Forest International School (FISP) offers education inspired by the child-centred approaches of Waldorf-Steiner and Montessori schools. Classes are limited to just 12 students so that teachers are able to provide individualised attention.
The school has an English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme for non-native speakers. In addition, children with learning difficulties are well catered for by the FISP's Educational Services department. The school can provide diagnostic evaluation, counselling and individualised educational plans for families that wish to make use of this service.
Applications for admission can be submitted throughout the school year. The school prefers not to operate waiting lists, so parents will need to contact the school to find out whether a space is available before applying.
