The International American Section at Saint-Denis International School is a program designed to give students in France the opportunity to learn English as if they were living and learning in an anglophone country. Students in the section are either anglophone or excel in English, and their courses are taught exclusively by native speakers who are experts in their fields. In addition to five days a week of English class, students also take history and geography in English.
Beginning in 6ème and continuing up until Terminale, students are taught English through intensive reading, writing, and literary analysis in addition to studying History and Geography entirely in English following a specially adapted International American Section curriculum. They are prepared for Cambridge’s IGCSE First Language English and IGCSE English Literature exams the same exams taken by students in the UK, and can use the results of these exams for entrance into competitive universities throughout the world.
