Composite Classes

Composite classes correspond well to our teaching philosophy. They foster the development of the children’s social skills (for example helping each other out and collaborations between the oldest and youngest students) as well as autonomy.

When it comes to forming groups, these classes make it possible to assess the differences in maturity between certain students, and to distribute the number of students between each class in a more homogenous manner.

How will my child’s class be chosen?

Except in exceptional circumstances, a child is placed in the class that corresponds to their age.
