Junior Secondary School

The transition into Secondary School is an important rite of passage for our students. From age 11 to 15, students begin getting familiarised with the teaching methods of Secondary School and preparing for the French national diploma (DNB). All throughout Junior Secondary School, students delve into important subjects that they have touched on briefly in Elementary School. The curriculum in Junior Secondary School intense but varied, and our teachers are all specialised in their areas and subjects.
