The École Jeannine Manuel is an elite private day school in Paris, France, founded in 1954 by Jeannine Manuel. École Jeannine Manuel is known for its rigorous bilingual (French and English) curriculum. Classes in both English and French provide students of diverse nationalities the opportunity to reach a high level of proficiency in both languages. The school also offers instruction in many additional foreign languages, including Chinese, which is offered to students ages 8+, Spanish, German, Italian and Latin. The school is one of the few in France to offer the International Baccalaureate alongside the Option Internationale du Baccalauréat and the French Baccalauréat. An associated UNESCO school, École Jeannine Manuel is also contractually part of the French national education system. According to the International Baccalaureate ranking, it is the top IB school in France according to IB exam results of May 2004 and onwards.

The main campus consists of several buildings in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, the most important being 70 and 65 rue du Théâtre and 115 avenue Émile Zola. The preschool is located nearby at the Suffren and Dupleix campuses, also in the 15th.

Notable alumni include politicians Tony Blinken[1] Jean-François Copé, actor Gaspard Ulliel and singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg.
