Lycée Honoré de Balzac
The largest state school campus in Paris, Lycée Honoré-de-Balzac offers, in addition to the normal French curriculum, international sections open to students who speak fluently and write in one of the following languages: Spanish, German, English, Arabic, Portuguese and Italian. Within this dynamic, culturally enriching international environment, these students pass the French general baccalaureate, with an international option (Baccalauréat Français International - BFI, previously known as the OIB). Please read the FAQs before applying to the English section.
Visiting the campus
Tours of the school and the grounds are organised once a year at the school Open Day. Members of the English section Parent Association (APESA) are on hand to give out information as well as answer your questions. The Open Day concludes with the English section teachers holding an information meeting about the section/entry tests/level required.
