As a co-educational, IB World School, providing Anglophone education for the international community in the Cannes-Nice-Monte Carlo region, the school offers a complete international education from Young Explorers (age 3) to Grade 12 (age 18).  Students learn in English and also benefit from daily French classes from age five upwards.

The school attracts globally minded families, With more than 65 nationalities represented in the student body, and 30 nationalities represented by staff, the school is a melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds.

IB through School (PYP, MYP and IBDP)

The ISN Nice International Baccalaureate education offers students a broad and balanced curriculum, that champions both academic achievement and personal development, which is well respected by leading universities and colleges worldwide.  Recognised as an IB World School since 1990, ISN Nice is authorised by the IB organisation to offer the IB Diploma Programme (IB DP), the IB Middle Year Programme (MYP), and the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).

International Community

ISN Nice is a proud member of Globeducate, one of the world’s leading premium bilingual and international school groups, with over 60 schools and online programmes in twelve countries. The overall aim of Globeducate is to prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world.

Being a member of Globeducate exposes ISN Nice students to exclusive partnerships, opportunities and programmes.  Throughout the year, students participate in events such as the Globeducate Academic Olympics, Model United Nations, the International Music Festival, and Visual Arts Competitions. Furthermore, students have access to an exclusive partnership with WWF, and also enjoy dedicated outdoor learning days, and exciting STEAM initiatives such as working with LEGO® Education Robotics Kits to integrate robotics and coding into the curriculum.

The World from our Classroom

ISN Nice has recently undergone extensive renovations, providing specific areas for problem solving, analytical thinking, imagination and creativity and digital skills while retaining the advantages of teamwork and collaboration. We believe the learning environment can play a crucial role in helping students to express themselves and to take care of their individual needs. Our teachers will work in flexible, adaptable spaces where they can guide and empower students in close collaboration.


Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics play a crucial part in every student´s educational journey. Through a “hands-on, minds-on” approach to learning and teaching, students acquire the tools and critical thinking skills to approaching problems. STEAM education immerses students and teachers in inquiry, dialogue, problem-solving and experiential learning that deepens understanding across their whole school learning. The commitment to STEAM education empowers students to tackle real-world challenges with creativity and critical thinking.

Nurturing Unique Journeys

Guided by ISN Nice’s dedicated university counsellor, each student’s journey is personalised to their unique aspirations and potential. The Futureproof university counselling programme starts in Grade 8 and continues all the way to Grade 12.  This helps to orient students towards courses connected to their career aims, individual potential and life-long learning aspirations.

The results of the education offered and Futureproof approach speak for themselves, with over 95% of ISN Nice graduates transitioning directly to college or university. Last year, 100% of graduates who applied to university were offered a place, a testament to ISN Nice’s unwavering commitment to student success.

Beyond the Classroom

ISN Nice offers unique initiatives, including Changemakers and The Essentials. “Changemakers” offers a choice of specialities such as creating a start-up, coding, an Eco-club and more, for students to explore and develop talents and abilities in non-traditional academic subjects. This encourages students to become active, engaged and visionary Changemakers, who use learning concepts in innovative ways.

“The Essentials” is a life skills, which is embedded into the curriculum and daily life of the school, and it goes beyond a traditional PSHE (personal, social, health education) class. “The Essentials” takes an innovative approach to student wellbeing and their physical and emotional health, broaching topics such as social media use, understanding mental health, first aid, financial literacy and study skills. 

Sports and Outdoor space

Students at ISN Nice have a real opportunity to excel in sports and physical education.

With the help of qualified and passionate teachers, they are encouraged to develop strong team player qualities while playing an assortment of games. Students enjoy a range of specialist-led sports and physical education classes from Kindergarten through Grade 10.
