Notre-Dame de la Merci is a private Catholic mixed high school located in the center of Montpellier, France.
The High School Institution has been welcoming since 1844. 1200 pupils between 15 and 18 years old to prepare the « Baccalauréat » (Grade 12, A levels), and 200 students in « Classes préparatoires », a university-level preparation for the national competitive entrance exams for the French « Grandes Ecoles ».
We would like to run a new partnership with a Swedish high school which teaches French. We don’t propose Swedish lessons to our pupils but are persuaded that we have a lot to share and to exchange. Also, the excellent English level of Swedish students will guarantee a successful partnership between our two schools.
Our high school has been involved for several years in the development of its international relations. We have partnerships with Spanish, German, Chinese and American High Schools. The school’s international projects have been rewarded last year by the French Ministry of Education with the attribution of the label ETOILE (Excellence Talent Ouverture Internationale pour les Langues Etrangères).
Besides the academic disciplines (Mathematics, Sciences, Literature, History, Economy…), ND de la Merci offers a variety of courses : European sections in English and Spanish, Digital classes and optional teaching of German, Chinese, Latin, Greek, Arts and Music.
It also proposes extra activities : Manga club, Reading club, Badminton, Volley ball, Run & Bike, Slackline, Body-building, Dance, Tennis, Drama club and Writing workshop.
The School offers an excellent equipment in Digital learning equipment, Sports and Science : audiovisual and computer rooms, gymnasium, weight room, library, S&T laboratories.
Teachers organize many projects during the year as going on educational trips (operas, theaters, museums, exhibitions, research labs, geology, scuba diving…), participating to the Mini-company Championships (French and European), attending to conferences with scientists, business managers and students.
The School has good national results (Baccalauréat, twice more « Mentions Très bien » (grade A pass) than the national average).
You can discovered those projects, the results and more in our yearbook (attached). You will see that our goal is not only good results for our students but also helping them to open their mind and to develop by giving them self-confidence, solidarity and charity values, a critical mind and an intellectual curiosity.
Also we asked for welcoming a Swedish Erasmus + Assistant next year for helping us to set up European projects.
You can contact me if you are interested to run a partnership with our school.
