  • Amazing condition and clock tower at one end. Colourful tiles. It’s a very elongated building. Recommended for a quick visit.  more »
  • Impossible not to see it when passing through Paillon Park. Some say it would be the nicest highschool in Nice...I would say it would be the nicest in the world. Really fantastic white building...  more »

  • Pretty building, no doubt about it. However, as a school, it's not great. I'm not sure whether to blame it on the French Education system or on this school specifically, but the level of education and more specifically the teachers leave a lot to be desired. Sure it looks like hogwarts standing outside in the free world, but once you walk in, the classrooms rival the modernity and maintenance of Chernobyl. The teachers are unqualified, staff cold and the organisation poor. The students are surprisingly kind, given the environment they study in. The academic level might be high but the actual learning in this school is abysmal. Having been in the international system my entire life, going to this school for a year felt like being woken up from a good dream. Still, quite a nice building from the outside :)
