Nous avons inscrit notre fils dans cette école primaire avec de grandes attentes, mais malheureusement, nous sommes très déçus par plusieurs aspects de l'enseignement et de l'organisation. Les professeurs d'anglais, bien qu'étant des locuteurs natifs, sont particulièrement médiocres en mathématiques et en sciences. Le niveau académique est extrêmement faible, ce qui oblige les parents à être constamment derrière chaque devoir pour corriger les erreurs fréquentes. Les leçons sont souvent d'un niveau pédagogique très bas, nous forçant à refaire les cours à la maison pour assurer une bonne compréhension des sujets. De plus, il y a un manque flagrant de cours de récréation, ce qui est essentiel pour le bien-être et le développement des enfants. La directrice, pour un établissement se disant bilingue, ne parle pas anglais, et a un contact difficile. L'école présente également de sérieux dysfonctionnements à tous les niveaux. La communication entre les parents et les professeurs est quasi inexistante, et il est presque impossible d'obtenir un retour de la direction. Cela nous laisse, nous parents, à chercher des informations cruciales chaque semaine dans des groupes WhatsApp, ce qui n'est ni pratique ni efficace. Le programme officiel de l'Éducation nationale n'est pas suivi, ce qui est quand même la base de ce qu'on attend d'une école privée.. De plus, le personnel se permet souvent d'adopter un ton inapproprié envers les parents, ce qui n'est pas acceptable dans un cadre éducatif. En résumé, nous sommes très déçus de l'expérience éducative offerte par cette école et nous retirons notre fils de l'école à la fin de l'année scolaire, comme bien d'autres parents nous avons pris la voie de l'exode.

École parfaitement bilingue. Les maîtresses sont excellentes et toujours bienveillantes. Les enfants semblent très heureux et le staff aussi

Nos deux garçons ont passé 3 années magnifiques au petit cours du rocher. Une école ou les maitresse et la directrice s’investissent fortement pour l’épanouissement et la réussite scolaire des enfants. Les progrès en anglais sont spectaculaire car l’anglais est enseigné à mi-temps alterné avec le français. C’est aussi une école laïque mais avec de belles valeurs traditionnelles. La communauté de parents et très internationale et chaleureuse. Nous recommandons cette école à nos amis.

Nous ne recommandons pas Le Petit Cours du Rocher ! La nouvelle directrice, licenciée de l'école catholique de Paris pour semble t il, des faits d agressivités sur son équipe, ne devrait pas avoir la possibilité d exercer à nouveau ce genre de poste. Apparement dans une seule année scolaire, 5 maitresses ont eu des mois d'absences à cause du harcelement de la directrice. Qu'elle drame!

Our experience at the primary school has been quite disappointing. To start, the head doesn’t speak any English, which has been a big problem for us since communication is crucial and we were expecting a bilingual environment. There doesn’t seem to be any fixed curriculum, and I’m always left wondering what my children are learning. Teachers seem to change constantly, which is really unsettling. Just when we get used to one teacher, they're gone and someone new comes in. It feels like there’s no real management keeping things together, and it's all over the place. Communication from the school is virtually non-existent. We rarely get updates or any kind of coherent information about what’s happening. Academically, I’m worried that my kids are falling behind....

Unfortunately this was a terrible choice for our two daughters. We were recommended this school by someone who has since left the school because of the poor management. The head teacher has very poor personnel skills and many teachers and assistants leave suddenly. We spoke to one of the teachers who left who we really liked and discovered there was bullying going on all the time. As the teachers change so often the standard is poor and there is no consistency between years. Moreover the vision of the school is positive discipline but we didn’t find this to be true at all. Children with poor behavior were removed from the class to another class. One child brought knives into the classroom because she didn’t like another child and she was never disciplined. Bullying in another class was allowed to continue. In one year group (the year above my child) two thirds of the students left in one year. I imagine the school will have to shut down if it continues this way!

Our daughter has been attended l’école Le Petit Cours du Rocher for last three years and she loved it! The principle languages of instruction are French (50%) and English (50%), with the morning conducted in French and the afternoon in English by experienced native French & English speaking teachers (precisely 8:30pm to 12:20 pm in French and from 12:20pm to 4:30pm in English, including lunch time). I emphasize this, as it is a truly bilingual school. We would like to sincerely thanks all the teachers and Mme Caux for this wonderful experience, which enabled our daughter to grow up in a such special environment full of practical and creative ideas, setting the basis for a bilingual education. Thank you so much to all PCR team!! We highly recommend this school.

Le Petit Cours du Rocher is a great bilingual school (English/French) for very young and young children. My grand son has been there for the past 3 years and it has been a dream and a blessing for him. I would recommend it very highly.

My son has just finished his year in very small section and I recommend this school 100%! A school on a human scale and therefore a family atmosphere, teachers very invested in their work and taking to heart the well-being of each child individually, very attentive to parents as well. Beautiful values ​​taught on a daily basis, such as benevolence, sharing, mutual aid, respect for class rules, and of course a very good bilingual school. Thanks to Catarina, Sofia, Joanny, Sylvie, Lauryn and Paula for this wonderful year 2023!
