Children in grades 8-9 in French schools (both private and public) complete the secondary education course by studying a fairly extensive list of subjects. The system of education in France is controlled by the state, so you can be assured of the quality of educational services - no matter which school you choose.
In the 9th grade it makes sense to undergo a one-year Pre-IB program, especially if you subsequently plan to study at the International Baccalaureate (IB) course. Pre-IB will help bring your knowledge into line with the national education system, and intensive language courses will raise the level of language proficiency to a level sufficient for subsequent education.
Education in France after the 10th grade

This is an internationally recognized course designed for 2 years; Children from 16 years old can apply to it. The IB program includes both compulsory and optional subjects, and the last student chooses himself, focusing on the requirements of the future specialty and university. IB will be especially useful if you are not completely determined with the country where you want to get a higher education - the IB certificate is highly regarded around the world and practically in all universities.
