One of the leading bilingual schools across the coastline of the South of France

As a well-established bilingual school located at the heart of Sophia Antipolis, ICS Côte d´Azur is at the cutting edge of 21st century international education. Our school community is surrounded by nature, encircled by 1,500 hectares of pine trees, forest parks and green spaces, a favourable setting for our children to connect, learn and play.

The school was founded in 2006 as EBICA Ecole Bilingue Internationale Côte d’Azur (Côte d’Azur Bilingual International School), and joined Globeducate in 2018. The school welcomes children from France and all over the world to learn in a stimulating, multicultural environment, from Early Years to Primary, they are immersed in a French and English bilingual programme that ensures, whatever their entry level, they develop strong foundational literacy and numeracy skills in both languages.

The PYP defines our approach to education, learners are skilled enquirers, researchers, problem solvers and communicators. The school is an Apple Distinguished School and in 2021 opened ‘The Hub’ - a purpose-built facility for STEAM education. ICS Côte d’Azur is committed to igniting curiosity and equipping students with the skills and knowledge that will shape their impact on the future.
