I go through the A-level program at the Paris School Ermitage School . Even when my parents and I only thought about choosing a foreign school, we immediately thought of either England or France: I've been studying English since my childhood, and French is well taught in my gymnasium. In Smapse we were offered the school of Ermitage School: it is generally considered bilingual (that is, equally strong in both English and French), that is, it suited us perfectly.
Training here is just a fairy tale: the school is located in the suburbs of Paris, so we go for a weekend, go on excursions, and what kind of shopping! The school itself is very beautiful, cozy - that's exactly what you imagine when you think about Paris!
The curriculum is expectedly complex and intensive, you have to memorize a lot, but teachers are very understanding and loyal - always ready to explain something Once more, give an extra lesson, help with homework or a personal project. Yes, here is another significant difference from the Russian school: we are very much engaged in the practice of the Hermitage - constantly experiments and laboratory, research works and group projects, without that at all! But I like it - very interesting and exciting, the main thing is not to make a mistake with the choice of subjects.
