About Living School

Living School is "school in service of life". They were founded to foster, through education and training, the emergence of responsible and fulfilled citizens into the world. Their goal is to transform students into contributors to a true evolution of humanity, by allowing children to accomplish their academic learning in a positive and stimulating climate, all while developing their self-confidence, their independence and autonomy, their sense of responsibility and their capacity to contribute to our society and to the world in a positive way. Living School is also a training center for parents and teachers.

We became a B Corp because we are using school and education as a force for good. We are educating future leaders who already contribute positively to society.

The Change We Seek®

Living School's goal is to promote a new form of education in France and in the world, one that fosters the growth of new ethical leaders, creators of quality for our society and for the world.

What makes us a better company?
