Over fifty members of the ISP community old and new gathered together to catch up, reminisce and bid a fond farewell to Mr Collett after 40 years of teaching.
International School of Paris History
In 1964, Monique Porter founded an international school within the city limits of Paris. She named the school Pershing Hall, based on the building where the operations started. At the beginning there were six students representing five different nationalities, but the school grew rapidly and soon expanded to cover classes from Kindergarten to Grade 8.
In 1975, after several moves to various facilities in the 16th arrondissement, the school settled in 96 bis rue du Ranelagh and changed its name to the International School of Paris. In 1983, ISP’s middle and high school moved into 7 rue Chardin, and in 1985, the school expanded into 6 rue Beethoven. Both Ranelagh and Beethoven campuses have grown with an additional building since then, and today the school boasts approximately 700 students representing close to 60 different nationalities and mother-tongue languages.
Throughout its 50 years of history, ISP has provided a first-rate international education to a diverse, motivated and happy student body. This would not have been possible without committed and professional teachers and staff, strong leaders, visionary trustees and active parent participation, to whom we all owe our success today.
