School Introduction


Enrolment Details

Students join the grade corresponding to their age as of 1st September in the year of application. ISN Nice has a rolling admissions policy, which means that applications are welcome at any time of year. The decision to admit a child to ISN Nice is based on the availability of a school place at the appropriate grade level, the school’s ability to meet the student’s needs and the student’s ability to fulfil ISN Nice programme requirements. If a school place is available, a new student can join mid-semester. Therefore, our admissions committee encourages early applications.

ISN Nice is currently enrolling for the 2024-2025 school year.
