Saint-Exupéry High school
St Exupéry High school, Saint-Raphaël, France
It‘s situated in the city center, within walking distance from the seaside, It welcomes 1700 students between the ages of 15 and 18. Their last three years of high school education prepare them for the final baccalaureate exam. Some students stay on for two more years in high school to obtain the 2-year post-baccalaureate BTS certificate (an advanced technician’s certificate called the “Brevet de Technicien Supérieur”).
At the end of the 2nde class or second year of high school, students have to choose between three academic fields:
– Literary (L),
– Economic and social (SES),
– Sciences (S).
The technological field or STMG “Sciences and Management Technologies”, trains students for the tertiary sector and is also an option for specialization.
A “Professional Baccalaureate” is also possible and includes a specialization in the tertiary sector.
The high school dates from the 1960’s and was completely renovated during the 2000’s. With its outdoor spaces, its cafeteria, its school restaurant, its amphitheater, its gymnasium and its large documentation center or CDI “Centre de Documentation et d’Information”), it looks like a small university campus.
Second year of high school or “Seconde 16”: we are 24 students, highly motivated!

We will talk about subjects such as literature, sciences, digital creation and theater through discussions with writers, actors, directors during the programmed workshops and literary performances. We will consider the question of the future of reading and writing, in all its forms and through all the media forms available to us as young citizens of Europe.
