About International School Ombrosa

First called The Nursery, then the Bilingual School of Lyon and Multilingual Upper Secondary School of Lyon, International School Ombrosa was founded in 1971 in Lyon by Pierre and Marie-Claude Vezin. The school is managed by a non-profit association that falls under the jurisdiction of the 1901 law.

Fully integrated to the French school system, the school was born from the wish to develop specific educational tools through and around schooling. These tools aim at stimulating every student’s fulfillment and allowing them to acquire first bilingualism, and then plurilingualism.

Since then, the school has evolved. It has received support from the ADERLY (Agence pour le Développement Économique de la Région Lyonnaise – Agency for the Economic Growth of Lyon’s Region), along with help from the town council of Lyon. For a long while now, Ombrosa has contributed to welcoming international families and joined its efforts to favour the international development of the agglomeration.

In 1987, our first promotion of Upper Secondary School graduates received their Baccalaureate diploma.

In 2005, the school becomes part of the “IB World School”, and the organisation of the International Baccalaureate allows Ombrosa Upper secondary school to offer the diploma’s curriculum.

Today, the school takes an active part in the diversity of teachings offered to French and international families of the Grand Lyon area.
In addition to the general and humane training, it also allows children to access an effective and simultaneous practice of as much as four foreign languages.

A school which exceeds the limits with its Teachers and Effort. Your child's future is in good hands here.

Jean jachète Dreu, a year ago

Very beautiful setting and pleasant hours, but inability to go out for lunch plus a fairly isolated school geographically. Infamous canteen, which has improved slightly over time. Very good choice for kindergarten where only English is spoken, and very good until mid-college. Afterwards, the classes empty. The worst aspect is still, Mrs. Thomas, a professor imbued with her person, sarcastic and odious.
