Our Ethos

“It is possible for education to carry on improving and for each generation, in turn, to make one more step towards the perfection of humanity; because the great secret of the perfection of human nature lies at the heart of education.” – Immanuel Kant


Welcome to the new website of the European school of Strasbourg.

The result of an ancient and very fruitful collaboration between the Academy of Strasbourg, the City of Strasbourg, the General Council of the Lower Rhine and the Alsace Region, the European School of Strasbourg rooted itself in the status of European Capital granted to the city in 1948 with the installation of various European institutions.

Designed to meet the expectations of European and international officials, the European School of Strasbourg was created as a result of the decision, at the end of 2006, of the Board of Governors of the European Schools (CSEE) to create associated schools. This opportunity that was taken by the French State and local authorities enabled the creation of a Local Public Education Establishment under the authority of the Rector of the Academy of Strasbourg.

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 Strasbourg 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.

The essential role of parents

Parents play a key role in the European School of Strasbourg. They present their opinions and suggestions concerning the organisation of the school through their representatives on the Board of Directors. They are responsible for organising extracurricular activities.


“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.” – Jean Monnet
