The Collège Stanislas de Paris is a private Catholic school in Paris, situated on "Rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs" in the 6th arrondissement. It has approximately 3,000 students, from preschool to classes préparatoires (classes to prepare students for entrance to the elite Grandes écoles such as Ecole Polytechnique, Centrale Paris, ESSEC Business school or HEC Paris), and is the largest private school in France. Stanislas is one of the most prestigious French schools (3rd in 2011).HistoryFounded in 1804 by Father Claude Liautard, the Collège has both traditional buildings and modern constructions. Under contract with the French government, it offers curricula identical to those of public education, also offering religious education on specific days - originally Wednesdays, since the Jules Ferry Laws of 1882, but now Saturdays. In 1822, its formal name was declared, after the Polish King Stanisław Leszczyński, the great-grandfather of the King of France Louis XVIII, whose second forename was "Stanislas".Since 1903 Collège has been the property of a S.A. corporation founded by former alumni. As of 2002, the school's director is Daniel Chapellier.

  • This establishment puts an unbearable pressure on students, especially the College and the high school. It does not form intelligent pupils but real machines to work which does not help them for their futures. I would advise against putting your children there.

  • The only pre-med medicine that offers both a school and a personal accompaniment, indispensable during the first year of medicine. The working atmosphere and the good agreement between the pupils is a real strength throughout the year!
