- The students take on positions within the school, such as managing the library, managing the compost, and being responsible for turning off the lights, which gives them a sense of responsibility and fosters their autonomy.


- They also take part in multi-age days, where they collaborate with primary school pupils.


- Our school embodies the values of the International Baccalaureate, including the development of the learner's profile, international awareness and bilingualism.


- Students take part in a variety of artistic, musical, educational and civic projects, including ERASMUS programs, round tables organized by academics and researchers, and annual visits to UNESCO.

School life and values

- All students actively participate in the democratic student council, where they put forward ideas to improve school life.

- Our focus on emotional support and social development is integrated into our pedagogical approach.

Our educational project

The Lab School Paris is an innovative, bilingual, united, secular, and eco-responsible school. It supports children in acquiring knowledge, skills, and culture from the Ministry of Education’s curriculum, while paying particular attention to the development of socio-emotional skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, empathy, etc.). It aims to transform pupils into responsible, enlightened, autonomous, supportive, and blooming citizens.

Educational organization

- We provide a learning environment where each group of up to 15 students is supervised by a dedicated teacher.

- Classes are taught in French or English, depending on the teacher's language of fluency and the needs of the facility, with key terms translated into the other language.

- French courses are aligned with national education standards. 

- English is taught at two levels: literature and acquisition.

- Our teachers focus on feedback and diagnostic and formative assessments to evaluate students' progress, rather than assigning grades in class or on their half-yearly report cards.

Pedagogical hybridization

The Lab School's pedagogy is based on the principle of pedagogical hybridization, i.e. the synthesis of different approaches. On the one hand, it draws inspiration from the pioneers of educational innovation such as Maria Montessori, Célestin Freinet,

John Dewey and Alexander Neill, and on the other, from current research in the educational sciences and other fields such as psychology, sociology, neuroscience, philosophy and anthropology. In consultation with the pedagogical council and Lab School Network researchers, the educational team takes into account studies that scientifically evaluate pedagogical practices, both from the point of view of academic success and well-being at school, and implements them with the children.

Secondary school at Lab School Paris

Secondary school begins with the 6th grade, which is still part of the primary school class groups, but is counted as a middle school and pays the middle school rate. From 7th grade onwards, pupils are in classes by level, but can take part in joint workshops.


Our classes go up to 10th grade, with the opening of the 11th grade scheduled for the start of the 2024 school year, and the 12th grade for the start of the 2025 school year.

The Lycée will be offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum from the start of the 2024 school year with the 11th grade.


IB World Schools share a common philosophy, a commitment to a stimulating, high-quality international education, which we believe is important for our students.

Fundamental learning

The school rhythm and organization of work are partly inspired by Montessori pedagogy, which provides for long periods of work. Learning is personalized, respecting the child's pace and way of learning. The materials we use often allow for self-correction, and we encourage collaborative learning and peer tutoring.

Project-based learning

The organization of school time takes into account the child's biological rhythm. Numerous studies show that the early afternoon is the least favorable time for new learning requiring attention. After recess, a moment of relaxation is proposed, followed by various activities, in groups or on their own, which reactivate fundamental learning: artistic practices, collaborative projects, yoga, scientific experiments, discovery of different professions, etc. This is also the time when children can review, at their own pace, notions they haven't yet fully assimilated in class, or view the reverse classroom capsules.
