The Lycée Condorcet is a school founded in 1803 in Paris, France, located at 8, rue du Havre, in the city's 9th arrondissement. Since its inception, various political eras have seen it given a number of different names, but its identity today honors the memory of the Marquis de Condorcet. The school provides secondary education as part of the French education system. Paul Verlaine, Henri Bergson and Marcel Proust were educated at the Lycée Condorcet.

Some of the school's famous teachers include Jean Beaufret, Paul Bénichou, Jean-Marie Guyau, Jean-Paul Sartre and Stéphane Mallarmé.

History[edit]

The Lycee Condorcet, opened in 1803, is one of the four oldest high schools in Paris and also one of the most prestigious. During the greater part of the nineteenth century, the school was the "great Liberal High School" on the right bank with its relatively flexible regime that was chosen by the progressive bourgeoisie for his son. It is among the few schools in Paris never had internship: students who were not staying with their parents worked, ate, and slept in the master pension neighborhood. The mix has gradually emerged in 1924 for preparatory classes for the grandes écoles, and 1975 for secondary classes.

The facility has brought successively names: High School of the Chaussee d'Antin (1804) Imperial High School Bonaparte (1805 - 1814) Royal College of Bourbon (July 1815 - February 1848) Imperial High School Bonaparte (1848 - 1870) Lycee Condorcet (22 October 1870 - 1874) School Fontanes (1 May 1874 - 27 January 1883) Lycee Condorcet (since 1883)

Preparatory classes are also very old and were treated to famous teachers such as Jean-Paul Sartre.
