The lycée Claude-Monet is a French public educational institution established in 1955. It consists of college, high school, and preparatory classes. It is located at 1, rue du Docteur-Magnan, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris close to the Quartier Asiatique. It is close to the parc de Choisy, stade Charles-Moureu and centre Pierre-Mendès-France, a university centre attached to the Pantheon-Sorbonne University.


The campus consists of more than 2,000 students, mostly living in the 13th arrondissement. The lycée offers a choice of options around artistic specialities (music, theatre, plastic arts, ancient languages - Latic and Greek), sciences, and economics.

There is also a European English section, a European Italian section, an international Chinese section (courses on literature and maths in Chinese), and an international Italian section preparing for the EsaBac (French baccalauréat and Italian esame di Stato). The lycée also offers courses in Chinese in inter-establishment languages (LIE).

The college also welcomes disabled students to its ULIS classes. The lycée runs preparatory economics and literature classes. Since 2013, the college also accepts students studying with CHAM (classes combined with music) in partnership with the conservatoire Maurice Ravel (Paris 13th).


The lycée was built in 1955 by the architect Roger Séassal, grand Prix de Rome. It is, like the neighbouring Parc de Choisy located on the former gasworks of the avenue de Choisy. Construction began at the end of the 1920s, which explains its architecture. Its construction was interrupted by the Great Depression and World War II. It resumed after the war, and was completed in 1955. An important renovation took place from 1998.

The murals decorating the lycée were created by:

Two options were proposed for the name of the lycée : Gabriel Fauré and Claude Monet. Eventually, the name chosen for the lycée was Claude Monet. In exchange, the grandson of Claude Monet gave the tableau Nymphéas avec rameaux de saule, now shown in the headmaster's office.

Gabriel Fauré eventually had a lycée nearby named after him, at 81, avenue de Choisy.

The lycée consists of four floors and a basement, the fourth floor, under the roof, dedicated entirely to plastic arts. There are three school libraries in the lycée (one for the college, one for the lycée, and one for the preparatory classes), two music rooms, and a 200 seat theatre. In the basement, there is a gym, a dojo, multiple locker rooms, and a 150 seat conference room. The ground floor contains administration offices, the infirmary, the refectory and a parlor. Outside, the lycée has almost entirely been adapted for people with reduced mobility: there are two lifts and an access ramp near to the stoop.

Ranking of the lycée[edit]

In 2017, the lycée was ranked 20th out of 115 at departmental level in terms of teaching quality, and 106th at national level.[2] The ranking was based on three criteria: the results of the bac, the proportion of students who obtain the baccalauréat having completed their final two years of schooling at the establishment, and the value added (calculated from the social background of students, their age, and their results in the national diploma).[2]
