An ambitious curriculum with paths of excellence

One of the priorities of Ecole du Nord is the focus on excellence in languages. Mauritius is a country whose administrative language is English. Creole is the most widely used language for oral communication, followed by spoken and written French. Although English is the language of instruction in the Mauritian system, French is deeply rooted in the country. To take into account the specificities of Mauritius and the challenges of tomorrow’s citizens, the teaching of English at Ecole du Nord is a priority at all levels and begins in pre-primary.
