Director's Welcome


Dear Parents,

Welcome to the International School of Monaco and our unique campus within the dramatic setting of Port Hercule.

Whether you are moving to Monaco for the first time, or already living and working in the region, we know that finding the right school for your child is of paramount importance. I hope this website will give you a flavour of our community and the breadth of opportunities on offer for your son or daughter.

Our school has come a very long way indeed, since we opened our doors in 1994 to 34 students.

In 2019, we celebrated our 25th birthday and today, the International School of Monaco offers education to nearly 700 students from 55 countries, aged from 3 to 18.

We seek to ensure that each student leaves with examination results that will open doors to the finest universities and employment opportunities in the world. This, however, is just a small part of what we believe makes a truly outstanding education. We want our students to develop a passion for learning and a capacity for independent thinking.

We want them to be internationally-minded so that they can appreciate other nations and cultures, and be ready to take their place in the global society. We want them to develop a broad range of interests that extend beyond the confines of the classroom. Crucially, we want all of this to be built on the foundation of strong moral values and self-confidence without arrogance.

In short, we are committed to developing the whole child, so that each student leaves here with the tools for a happy and successful life.

As you look through this website, we hope you will find answers to most of your questions. Above all, you will be encouraged to come and visit our school to see for yourselves, and to meet our staff and students. You will, I am sure, get to experience the buzz and excitement of our unique school.

If you have questions about any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to hearing from you,

 

Julian THOMAS
Director of ISM
