School year abroad in an International School in Paris : Testimonials
A school very committed to the education of its students. I recommend it 100%.


I appreciate very much knowing that Sean has such wonderful support from both the admission team & academic faculty available should he need any assistance settling into his new home life & school life. It is quite an adjustment for any young child to make moving so far away from home & all that is familiar. Sean is an outgoing & curious child who makes friends very easily, so I am confident his transition will go smoothly


The overall experience of attending school abroad and living with a (wonderful) host family has been very positive. For Sean to experience the vibrant & rich French culture first-hand has been invaluable to getting to know his own French lineage, as well as just having a lot of fun. Living and studying amongst a very culturally-diverse population, in a very dynamic part of the world, has opened Sean's eyes to a very interesting life that extends far beyond the confines of our small Connecticut town. And, most importantly for Sean, the friendships he has developed with his host family and with fellow NDIHS students & teachers alike will be treasured for a lifetime. My husband & I are forever grateful for the experiences & opportunities Sean was afforded through your program
