At the beginning of the 2022 school year, there were 465 pupils enrolled in the collège (5 classes of 6eme, 6 classes of 5eme, 5 classes of 4eme and 5 classes of 3eme) .
The school emphasises the deepening and broadening of fundamental knowledge, the learning of modern languages, the experimental practice in science, the artistic creation in music and plastic arts, and sports. All pupils are equipped with a tablet on which they have access to homework and school books.
In 3ème, the pupils work on their personal orientation project. They prepare for the Diplôme National du Brevet (DNB) exams and their entry in Seconde (lycée). All pupils in the collège have 26 hours of compulsory lessons a week, to which the following optional lessons can be added

The “Common core of Skills, Knowledge and Culture” presents what each student should know and master by the end of the compulsory schooling. There are five areas of skills that are assessed and need to be validated to obtain the “Diplôme National du Brevet”.
During their schooling, secondary school pupils are required to follow four educational pathways: the “parcours Avenir”( personal Project for the future), “parcours citoyen” ( Citizenship Pathway) , ‘parcours artistique et culturel” (the Artistic and Cultural Pathway) and “parcours santé” ( Health Pathway).
The aim of these pathways is to help pupils reflect on themselves, their relationship with others and the rest of the world. They contribute to helping them become enlightened people, educated in choice and the construction of a critical mind, aware of the major challenges of tomorrow’s world.
Each year, they result in a programme of actions and projects carried out by teachers, educational and health staff.
The Lycée Bonaparte welcomes children of all nationalities, whether French-speaking or not, from kindergarten (maternelle) to the end of secondary school.
