The Sainte-Victoire International School is undoubtedly an internationally oriented environment. It provides education for students from primary school through to the end of secondary. Teaching is bilingual starting at primary school level. Students are grouped according to level to allow them to achieve their academic potential in both French and English.
The school, which is nestled in the heart of an international 18-hole golf course situated facing the Sainte-Victoire mountain, offers its students a healthy and peaceful school environment.
SVIS provides an innovative approach to teaching and learning, incorporating cross-disciplinary subjects as well as a range of wonderful learning opportunities that take place off campus. These include an ecology park where students can grow fruit and vegetables, an extensive range of local and International trips and an abundant offering of after school activities.

I had an amazing experience studying at this fantastic School. There is an incredible amount of support from everyone, the school feels like one big family. The teachers are both very kind and great at explaining things.
The facilities are also fabulous: both the school and the boarding house are located on a prestigious golf course.
I highly recommend this school.
This school has been a wonderful nurturing environment for my two daughters. They were both able to integrate top universities in the UK and tell me often that they are grateful for the skills that they learnt at SVIS, which has given them advantages over their fellow students. They were challenged and supported in their learning and benefitted from the small, family atmosphere where all of the teachers know their students well and can personalise their learning for each student's needs.The school is intentionally small in size, but the staff work hard to include many extra activities, trips and events which enrich the life of the students. The setting of the school, on the grounds of a golf course, is amazing.
Superb bilingual education by an attentive staff and teachers. Sports including horseback riding (extra fee) and golf are a regular part of the curriculum. The environment is secure. There are grades K-12 in various parts of the facilities. A quality IB program run by an extremely dedicated program director is definitely a shining star. Additional highlights include an “International Day”, a trip to Sri Lanka for the IB students and various shows put on by the students. If you are considering a International School in the area of Aix-en-Provence, this should be your choice.
The building groans every time the wind passes and the paranoia of it crumbling sets in, the food is deplorable, beware certain personnel excluding the teachers who are great and very competent and actually care about their students’ academic successes. I’d say go to this school if you’re purely looking for an international school with a large focus on your education (and father figures at school) cause you’re not gonna get much else out of the experience besides a diploma and a tolerance for people who will test your a patience on the daily. BETTER HERE THAN IBS. DON’T GO TO IBS. All in all, 5/10, would maybe recommend.
