Our school

Welcome to the website of the European School of Paris-La Défense.

The European School of PLD* is the result of a joint project of the Académie de Versailles, the City of Courbevoie, the Hauts-de-Seine (92) Department and the Paris Region. Its purpose is to provide schooling for the children of the staff of the several E. U. institutions established in the Paris Region, as well as for children with an international background.
Respecting the educational model that is common to all European Schools, based on a multicultural approach, very open to languages as well as the independence of the child, the European School of PLD* offers a comprehensive curriculum from kindergarten to the European Baccalaureate, a qualification recognised by all the member countries of the European Union, and many others.


  • A multilingual and multicultural education – The mission of the European Schools is to provide a multilingual and multicultural education for nursery, primary and secondary level pupils.
  • Promotion of European spirit and cooperation between all the parties involved in school life.


Educated side by side, untroubled from infancy by divisive prejudices, acquainted with all that is great and good in the different cultures, it will be borne in upon them as they mature that they belong together. Without ceasing to look to their own lands with love and pride, they will become in mind Europeans, schooled and ready to complete and consolidate the work of their fathers before them, to bring into being a united and thriving Europe.
