Wi School Montholon-Paris 9th

Founded in 2008 with the ambition of offering high quality bilingual education in Paris, Wi School Montholon-Paris 9th is the oldest school in the Wi School network.

Its founder, a former lawyer living in an international environment, was keen to develop the school’s educational project around three principles: the guarantee of learning the fundamentals in line with the French National Education curriculum, the bilingual immersion approach and the application of active teaching methods, such as the Montessori pedagogy. To achieve this, the members of the educational team have completed demanding training courses in the latest developments in education: in the United States: Head of School training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; in France: certifications in Education Sciences, in Montessori, in Positive Pedagogy, in Institutional Pedagogy, etc.

At all levels, students are offered a full bilingual environment, thanks to native teachers who are passionate about education.

At the Children’s House (from 2.5 to 6 years old), the attentive and empathetic educational team uses the Montessori teaching methods.

All the Montessori materials are gradually introduced to the children so that they can use them and develop their knowledge and fundamental skills at their own pace. Handling this material, along with activities and practical experiments, enables the students to develop abstract thinking, having grasped the notion of concepts.

By developing their self-confidence and their trust in the group that supports them, the children also learn skills that are essential for living in a group.

In primary school, the Montessori material is always there, and the teachers, drawing on their diverse experience, also develop other teaching methods and tools in order to best meet the students’ learning goals. One of the principles of the Montessori pedagogy that is also applied in primary school is the mixing of age groups. This promotes collaboration, communication and a sense of belonging. Younger students are inspired to learn by observing older students and imitating them. Older students can help younger ones. This helps to train them and makes them more responsible. We learn a lot when we can explain things to someone else. Moreover, it’s rewarding!

Thus, mixing age groups promotes communication, mutual support, collaboration and a sense of belonging.
