L'Autre École Boulogne

Beautiful Minds Boulogne

Presentation

L'Autre École Boulogne opened its doors in 2018 and will make its fourth start in September 2021. It currently has three classes of 24 students, with two teachers per class: one French teacher and one native English-speaking teacher.
Each child is cared for from Petite Section (from 20 months) to CM2, with a 95% re-enrollment rate.

The school is located in the heart of Boulogne-Billancourt, halfway between the Jean Jaurès and Marcel Sembat metros, a stone's throw from the town hall and the Landowski space. It is a special place for children, combining a 250 square meter educational garden, spaces that encourage collaboration and exchange, and Scandinavian and Japanese inspired architecture that allows for natural light in all classrooms.

Parents are welcomed every morning at 8:30 am with music for their children and are invited to meet and bond during parent workshops in the evenings and on weekends.

Education doesn't stop at the end of the school day This is why L'Autre École Boulogne has built a completebilingual AfterSchool program. The children practice an activity every day of the week (theater, cooking, meditation, yoga, music, sports, etc.) in a program designed to promote emotional and physical expression, artistic sensitivity and openness to the world. These extracurricular activities are also open to families outside of L'Autre École to allow them to discover our pedagogy and our school.

"It takes a whole village to raise a child."

- African proverb.

The educational team

Our teachers are superheroes. We have carefully recruited them for their profiles and life paths. By joining us, they commit themselves daily to a different vision of the school.

Lunch

We wish to offer you more than just a regular canteen. We believe that the meal is a convivial moment to be shared by all: teachers and children, come together to experience this special moment together. This is important for our school: as we wish this moment to be an important occasion in their daily life and we want this meal to be a key moment in the children's day.
