A few days ago, I talked about the Lycée Chaptal. We have another beautiful school close to where I live, the Polish school. It's of course much smaller, but it's really nice.
The Polish school in Paris was created in 1842. There were then a lot of Polish immigrants in Paris, the most famous of course being Chopin (http://www.chopin.pl/biografia/index_en.html). The school moved to where it is today in 1874.
The Polish poet, Czeslaw Milosz (http://www.evene.fr/celebre/biographie/czeslaw-milosz-1946.php) , who got the Nobel prize in 1980 (and died in 2004), lived in the same street for a while.
