The forest international school attempts to combine academics with other learning activities. A lot of time is spent outdoors making use of the resources that the forest has to offer.

The school's location is excellent, and the pedagogie treats children to grow. The teachers are amazing, and the support is even better. Our son is enjoying going to school again.

We have 6 years experience with this school and we are absolutely satisfied. The kids have a wonderful daily life with indoor (class, swimming pool) and outdoor (playground, forest) activities. They explore the forest on a daily basis and they have a regular interaction with nature and animals. Frequent visits to farms & trips are organized and the kids learn the curriculum by experience not only by reading books. They learn concepts like recycling, the cycle of life of animals (chickens, birds etc) and they participate in projects (like building machines, learn how to run a shop by producing cosmetics & art products). The teachers and the bus drivers are doing their best to keep the families happy. Whenever we experienced issues the admin staff was there to support us since we are expats. The parents try to have frequent meetings and there is a community which is really supportive for expats. If you want your children to grow in an international school you should definitely give a try!

Forest International School provides much needed support to students with learning challenges and their families. My son enjoyed his year at the school regaining his confidence through making friends and positive reinforcement. While my son is no longer at Forest, the school's director stays in touch and still provides support as a friend. For parents and students looking for a personal touch and an accessible director, Forest International School is highly recommended.

We loved our experience in Forest School! At FISP we found a welcoming and helpful team and community that made our arrival and settlement in France really easy. Our children learned English in a record time and were already integrated and happy in three months. After four years full of learning and excitement, enjoying the forest daily, the kids were mature, joyful and with the academic level to move on for the next steps. Caring and innovative teachers and a free and tolerant environment makes Forest School something really special.

My 2 boys (2 and 4) just started school at the Forest International School and I am stunned by this amazing property and the happiness I see on the kids' face. The parent association is welcoming, the teachers are carefully listening to all parents, class size is maximum 11 for primary and 5 for younger kids, their own swimming pool enables swim classes twice a week, everyone does daily activities in the forest across the street, and they offer bus services from Paris. It is an ideal location for both kids and parents.

An absolutely awful school—RUN! As another reviewer said, the school has a lot of potential (it lures in teachers and parents with this) but just is not being run well. It is so poorly managed, with two women in charge of the school who treat the teachers very unkindly and lie to the parents’ faces on a regular basis. The forest? It’s beautiful. But the school grounds? Rundown, disorganized, full of old and broken materials, just a true mess. So many teachers leave each year, and even the ones who stay are not happy there and are looking for new jobs elsewhere. Please find a better place for your children to attend school! The forest itself is beautiful but the school just is not worth it.
