For the 2024–2025 academic year the Denis Diderot School is admitting students for the preparatory (6 years) and first grade. We will be happy to answer all of your questions about admission and the overall school organisation. We look forward to receiving your inquiries via the contact channels given.

Admission Criteria

The Denis Diderot School enrols all children, irrespective of their nationality, religion, ethnicity, gender or skills. At our school, children do not need to pass aptitude tests to prove they are ready for school, nor will they be subjected to observation by a psychologist. A meeting with the parents is sufficient for us to judge their appropriateness and to decide whether we share the same views on the child’s education and upbringing, so as to maximise the child’s potential for self-development at school. Parents applying for their children to be admitted to the Denis Diderot School share the school’s culture and system of values. They are aware of their principal role and responsibility for their care for the children and for their upbringing. They devote a great deal of their time to their family. They bring up their child without any consumerist attitudes, but with tolerance, respect and care for both people and the natural world. They are looking for a friendly and creative environment where their children can develop their talents and grow up knowing that they are appreciated and that their thoughts, feelings and actions matter. Parents are also aware that the school is a community in which lasting relations of friendship and partnership are built. They become actively involved in the child’s life and development, and coordinate with the teachers through frequent feedback.


Families interested in the Denis Diderot School need to complete and submit an online form that can be found on the school’s website. Afterwards, parents will be invited to a meeting with the school’s Principal.


The school fees cover full-time study for 10 months, including textbooks and school materials. The Denis Diderot School provides its own transport and varied meals prepared on-site in the school kitchen. The fees for meals and transport are in addition to the tuition fee. 

Children studying in a preparatory or other school class, receive a vacancy for a higher class for the next school year, in case they have placed a request by 31 December of the respective year.
