École Jeannine Manuel

École Jeannine Manuel operates two schools – one in Paris and one in London – whose strong academic curriculum is rooted in the belief of the power of a bilingual education.

Wielding Bilingual Education to Bring People Together

École Jeannine Manuel

During World War II, French-born American Jeannine Manuel traveled to Europe to join the Free France resistance movement. During her time there, she witnessed horrific conflict, which she believed to be rooted in fear resulting from cultural misunderstanding. Upon returning to France at the conclusion of the war, she was compelled to create a school which would foster intercultural appreciation, tolerance, and empathy through bilingual education. This vision has guided École Jeannine Manuel in the decades since the Paris-school founding in 1954. The school's original students were the children of NATO leaders who were dedicated to Manuel's vision of a future world free of conflict. Today, École Jeannine Manuel's student body ranges from preschool to high school students and is comprised of nearly 80 different nationalities. The top-ranked school champions an immersive curriculum that emphasizes foreign language proficiency, engagement in global affairs, International Baccalaureate degrees, and pursuing higher education through global best practices. In 2015, a second school was opened in London to offer more students the same rigorous and transformative curriculum.
