Children aged three to five attend preschool. The registration has to be made in your local town hall.
 
Children aged six to ten attend primary school. The registration has to be made in your local town hall. Schools also offer special classes for those who need to learn or improve their French.
 
Children aged eleven to fifteen attend junior high school (collège) and then from sixteen to eighteen high school (lycée). Pupils are assessed in order to define their level and then directed to the best-suited class
