International School distinguished for excellence

''The architectural and environmental quality of an education establishment contributes not only to the excellence of the education provided, but also to the well-being and the quality of life of the students,'' said PACA Region President Michel Vauzelle. (Click to view larger version...)
''The architectural and environmental quality of an education establishment contributes not only to the excellence of the education provided, but also to the well-being and the quality of life of the students,'' said PACA Region President Michel Vauzelle.
Every five years, education establishments all over the world enter a competition called the Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities.

The Compendium, which is sponsored by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), aims to distinguish and reward excellence in the quality of education and also in the establishment's architectural environment.

Among the 166 submissions from 32 countries that it received this year, the Compendium's jury selected a short list of 60, ranging from a music academy in Poland to a kindergarten in Argentina and a university in Shanghai.

The Manosque International School was among the 60 finalists and will be featured next year in the 4th Compendium of Exemplary Educational Facilities, a beautifully illustrated publication which will be distributed to policy makers, architects, designers, clients and prominent educationalists worldwide.
"Such a distinction," said PACA Region President Michel Vauzelle who was responsible for the construction of the Manosque International School, "is proof that the architectural and environmental quality of an education establishment contributes not only to the excellence of the education provided, but also to the well-being and the quality of life of the students."

Enrolment at the Manosque International School is now up to some 400, a little more than half (53.5 percent) of them being "ITER children."
