Our School


Where children become actors of tomorrow’s world

Welcome to My School!

My School is small bilingual school just a stone’s throw from the center of Toulouse. It is a completely independent establishment run by a non-profit association (Loi 1901). My School is a private school, that is accredited by French Éducation Nationale.

We accept children aged 2 to 11 and newcomers are welcome throughout the school year. We limit group size to enable us to adapt the program to each child’s individual needs. Our aim is to foster a happy, friendly environment which will bring out the best in youngsters from diverse backgrounds.

Our curriculum is based on the French national curriculum, following the Common Core of Knowledge and Skills 2016 (“le socle commun de connaissances, de compétences et de culture 2016”). The first academic priority of the school is to make sure that every child makes excellent progress in French language and mathematics. However we are confident that our bilingual approach, where children are immersed in a bilingual environment every day with native French and English speakers, will enable each child to build a sound working knowledge of each language and to learn about British and American culture in a fun way. Cambridge English method is used to teach English as an Additional Language in My School.cambridgeenglishlogo

School Grades Equivalents in French, English, and American School Systems

french-english-american-education-systems

One main difference between the French and English/American education system is that in France the year of birth is taken into account when placing a child in a year group whereas in England and in the US the age of the pupil is taken into account from the beginning of September to the end of August.
