Elodie Magnes

Founder and headmistress

For ten years, Elodie Magnes was Head of Human Resources while also teaching students in business and engeneering schools. Her passion for teaching, psychology and human relations lead her towards education. In 2012, after training in Paris, she first envisioned her project. She went on to open the very first YEL World School in 2016. The school is based on an innovative educational program she created for nursery and primary children. Convinced of the necessity of bilingualism from early childhood and of the need of major change in the traditional educational methodology, she naturally went down the path of creating an alternative and international school. Today, she has dedicated herself to YEL's development. She currently works in partnership with well reputed American institutions, especially in New York, in order to internationally develop this innovative concept. The main goal in the short-run is to offer YWS pathways in these schools, based on French-English bilingualism, opening to the world, kindness, caring and children's growth.
