Our Story

Head of School Welcome

Welcome to Ecole Bilingue!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to an academic institution that has been at the forefront of bilingual education for the last 45 years. Our school creates a truly unique learning environment, where learning to understand each other is as important as mastering the curriculum. We nurture creative, multilingual learners, equipped to confidently embrace the delights and challenges of an interconnected world. We believe that strong language command will give our students greater professional opportunities and better equip them to face the global world in which we live.
Ecole Bilingue is dedicated to high academic and social achievement, combining the rigor of French pedagogy with a comprehensive social emotional learning program to give our students the tools they need to be successful citizens. At EB, we strive to help our students reach their true potential and learn to see a world without barriers, knowing that they belong anywhere in it that they choose.
Over the past two years, we have witnessed the importance of connection and resilience during the most challenging times we’ve ever seen in Education. I am immensely proud of the tremendous efforts and enthusiasm of the staff who truly believe in EB’s mission and vision. Our passionate educators believe in helping students embark on an exciting learning journey and utilizing an individualized approach to meet each student where they are.
At Ecole Bilingue, we not only teach French and American standards, but we also empower our students to value and respect diverse perspectives. We encourage them to be passionate readers, avid learners, articulate speakers, and critical thinkers. We give them the opportunity to discover, explore, create, and challenge ideas throughout their journey from preschool to middle school. Our students benefit from a whole child approach where all adults strive to embody our core values of Unity, Reflection, Integrity, Zeal and Endeavor. Our school’s purposeful and meaningful inclusion is core to our mission in that it enhances the educational experiences and outcomes for all students, staff, and families.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about EB. While no website can completely capture the dynamic environment that defines our unique school, I hope that your exploration will provide you with a glimpse of the engaging activities that our students experience on a daily basis. We hope you’ll come visit us in person at our lively campuses in Berkeley to see for yourself! 
Best wishes,
Sébastien Robert
Head of School
