Collège International Marie de France

The Collège international Marie de France (formerly Collège Marie de France, named after a French poet of the 12th century) is a French, private school in Montreal, Quebec. Many professors come from France, and Parisian French is taught and spoken at the school. The school is also renowned for its language and literature programs, and all students learn three languages (French, English and a choice of either Spanish, Italian or German). Students benefit from theatre, music and art classes, and are also taught physics, biology and calculus. Additionally, optional courses such as Latin or Art history can be taken. The school has kindergarten, elementary, high school, and college programs. It is one of the two French private lycées located in Montréal, Québec (alongside Collège Stanislas). Founded in 1939 by French expatriates, the school prepares its students from age 4 to 17 for the French baccalauréat. It also provides equivalence with the diplomas of Québec as defined in the framework of the international agreement between France and Québec, enabling students to spend school in both the Canadian and French system. Today, it is well known for its ethnic diversity, a feature that led former principal Joel Lust to add 'international' to the name of the school.
