Une école qui vous ressemble ouverte au monde et aux autres
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.
In Primary (Pre-primary and Primary)
Increased number of hours of exposure to English throughout pre-primary, by an external teacher (one speaker = one language).
Reinforced schedules in primary for all, beyond the requirements of the International Section.
* The collège is the lower-level secondary school for students from 11 to 15. There are four levels: 6ème (lowest), 5ème, 4ème, 3ème (highest). The syllabus offers a general education and consists of French, mathematics, history, civics, biology, physics, technology, art, music, and physical education. At the end of 3ème, students sit the Diplôme National du Brevet. The test is on French, mathematics, history/geography and science/technology. They must also reach A2 level in another language.
