Paris as a Classroom

tyled hr

We believe our students should learn from doing, observing, exploring

Our students benefit from seamless access to the city of Paris for field trips, sports excursions, and other urban discovery and experiential learning opportunities.

Whether it is seeing new exhibits at the Pompidou, climbing to the top of the Iron Lady or descending into the sewers, Paris is our classroom.

Through this initiative, we facilitate over 70 local field trips into Paris each year, where students leave the traditional classroom to learn by inquiry, discovery, and action.
