  • My daughters were very upset about leaving France, when we moved last summer. One had been in a local ‘maternelle,’ the other in a bilingual school in the 15th arrondissement, so one way for us to give them continuity was to enroll them at EINY, where they would follow the French curriculum and the French system. The school has been the easiest transition: they are unqualifiedly happy! They love the teachers, and have two teachers, one American, and one French, with different personalities and approaches. As a parent, I was attracted by the size of the school, and the combination of pedagogical approaches that make EINY so distinctive. It is the ideal mix of Anglo-Saxon attention to the individual child and the rules, the expectations – that ‘you can’t do n’importe quoi’ of the French school. What is expected of a French school is amply delivered, without being nervous that anyone is going to tell your child that he is ‘nul.’ It is also nice, as our daughter speaks Hebrew at home, to be in a school with kids who also have parents who are interested in the bilingual education but also speak a third language. Finally, I appreciate that music is taken so seriously. I believe it is a language in and of itself, and that could be developed into another distinctive advantage in this international school.

  • Chin’Einy started as a vision. Then it became a mission: making sure the children had a safe, enjoyable, and eye-opening educational trip to China. Mission accomplished. After months of thorough preparations, Yves and Clyde skillfully drove the operation, while teachers and accompanying parents provided unwavering attention and good care for all the children. Children were real troopers: adults infused the experience with enthusiasm galore. Likewise, the Yucai Foreign Language School and Chinese families in Hangzhou were fantastic. Their warm welcome went beyond what such school exchanges and family hosting generally entail. I observed our children attending classes at Yacai, and was struck by how fasincated, relaxed and happy they were at school with their Chinese friends.” Chin’Einy was an awesome success. We traveled as a unit, a big joyful family of sorts. The twenty-five 4th and 5th graders were wonderful. Seeing them engaged, inquisitive, and at times mesmerized was a delight. Hearing them draw connections between what they observed and what we had studied together at school prior to the trip was a treat. The fifteen chaperones were amazed, amazing, and very supportive!” This first discovery of China, its culture, and its people ought to have a lasting impact on our children’s developing minds and open up their desire to explore other cultures and languages. Long live Chin’Einy!

  • 'We have been with EINY since the beginning,' says Kevin. “Our son, Killian, is in the 5th grade now, and we all love it. EINY offers the best of both worlds. My wife, Sophie, is Parisian and we have family in France. This type of comprehensive education allows our son to interact with our family. Because the student-to-teacher ratio is phenomenal, each student’s needs are met and the talented teachers are able to customize the work to meet the student’s needs. EINY’s world-facing approach is fantastic! There is richness to the EINY experience; children have a more sophisticated worldview, and being there is like traveling without a passport. There is a very high level of community and awareness at EINY. We have grown close to the teachers and the parents, and are planning for Killian to attend through 8th grade. I feel terrific that Killian is getting a great education. The academics are outstanding. Children explore the latest in all disciplines, in particular technology. Experiences extend well beyond the classroom, including the music, arts, nature, sustainability, educational travels, field trips, and more. The personalized attention that each child receives ensures their academic and personal growth. EINY is more than just a ‘French’ school, it is a community of international families whose children experience the benefits of a bilingual immersion, both in and out of the classroom.
