Prytanee National Militaire reviews
Exceptional establishment whose history is of rare richness in the French educational universe: Descartes (the philosopher), Gallieni (Marshal of France and Minister) or Brialy (the actor) have been raised there. Interesting visit, led by the students.
We are not a military family. My son has just incorporated a preparatory class. No mystery, we need a very good file. Namely, half of the pupils do not spend in the second year.
