From the early years to high school, the institution provides a comprehensive learning environment geared towards preparing students for the complexities of higher education and beyond. Drawing in families with a global outlook, the school boasts a diverse student body representing over 60 nationalities, complemented by a staff comprising individuals from 30 different countries, creating a rich mosaic of cultures.

With both American and European accreditations, the International School of Nice has been a cornerstone of international education on the French Riviera for more than four decades. As a co-educational institution and an IB World School serving the international community in the Cannes-Nice-Monaco region, it offers a complete educational journey from the age of three to eighteen. Students are immersed in English-medium instruction and benefit from daily French classes starting at the age of five.

The school's International Baccalaureate programme provides a well-rounded curriculum that emphasizes both academic excellence and personal development. Authorised by the IB organisation to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the IB Diploma Programme (IB DP), the high school curriculum prepares students for IGCSE exams and the IB Diploma. With the guidance of the Futureproof programme, over 95% of graduates transition directly to reputable universities, primarily in the UK, France, and North America.

Recent renovations have revitalised the campus, creating dedicated spaces for critical thinking, creativity, and digital literacy, while maintaining a focus on teamwork and collaboration. With state-of-the-art facilities including outdoor sports areas, a STEAM Makerspace, a theatre, a teaching kitchen, a library, and a music studio, the school offers a plethora of opportunities for students to explore their interests and talents.

The International School of Nice is dedicated to empowering students to tackle the challenges of an ever-evolving global community, shaping a brighter future for all.
