Lycée Louis-le-Grand

public school in Paris, France

The Lycée Louis-le-Grand (French pronunciation: ​[lise lwi lə gʁɑ̃]) is a prestigious secondary school located in Paris, France. Founded in 1563 by the Jesuits as the Collège de Clermont, it was renamed in King Louis XIV of France's honor after he extended his direct patronage to it in 1682. It offers both a high school curriculum and a post-secondary-level curriculum, notably “khâgne” (≈Humanities college) and “Maths Sup” (≈Science college); these are meant to prepare students for entrance to the elite grandes écoles such as the École normale supérieure and the École Polytechnique. Admission to Louis-Le-Grand is very competitive; the strict selection process is based on academic grades, drawing from middle schools (for entry into high school) and high schools (for entry into the preparatory classes) throughout France. Its educational standards are highly rated and the working conditions are considered optimal due to its demanding recruitment of teachers. Louis-Le-Grand students – called magnoludoviciens – generally achieve excellent results; topping national rankings for baccalauréat grades in high school and entry into the best grandes écoles in the preparatory classes.
