The school’s global community is a closeknit one, with the family atmosphere enhanced by its unique setting: BEPS was founded in a beautiful house on Avenue Franklin Roosevelt in 1972. Over the past five years, renovation works have updated the building and playground, but the original interior elements and layout maintain the warmth of the family home it once was. “It’s a stunning building and very particular to us,” begins director Pascale Hertay. “Children feel at home right away.” A passionate advocate of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), Hertay arrived at the school in January 2014.
