    Albert66 years old

    "Here we have the best teachers in the world."

    Oscar6 years old

    "Everyone was very kind, but the principal was even more so. What struck me the most was in the spring when we were looking for eggs in the school courtyard. It was so much fun! And also, I loved visiting Sacré Cœur and taking the funicular."

    Paul10 years old

    "I found the teachers and the principal very nice. I was always happy to go to school because I had fun with my classmates, there were great activities in class. It was also in this school that I started learning English and it was very useful for me to start early. My fondest memories are the events we celebrated throughout the year: birthdays, carnival, Halloween, and Christmas."

    Jade15 years old

    "I really like my school, the teachers are too kind and we also have games in the courtyard for recess."

    Hortense6 years old

    "The Petit Cours du Rocher will have a special place in our hearts and our gratitude forever for those special years."

    Max & Macy19 & 18 years old

    "It's a very good school, the teachers are very approachable and pedagogical. Language learning is really well taught, I could speak English well before I arrived in CP! I really liked the fact that there weren't many students in the class because I was little so I didn't feel lost or overwhelmed and my parents were reassured. The emphasis on festivals allowed me to open up at a very young age to many cultures!"

    Paul15 years old

    "I have wonderful memories of this school! I made friends that I still have today and who share the same feeling as me. I think that the international aspect is a very important value and instilling it in children at a young age only has advantages for their future. Teachers and management are always there to help both parents and students. The education is of a great level, while maintaining a fun, recreational, and cultural aspect that makes every child love going to school!"

    Lily19 years old

    "Learning English at the Petit Cours du Rocher helped me a lot over the years. I have become comfortable communicating in English. I always watch movies in English with subtitles. At the age of 11, I traveled to NY alone! I remember such friendly moments with my teachers: we made a giant Origami, picked leaves in the Parc Monceau, at the Christmas party where my mother played the cello... I remember all the class teachers. At the Petit Cours du Rocher, I spent a very rich and joyful time. Thank you Clemence."
