Monaco's statistics

Monaco’s Student population exceeds 6,400 for the first first time in 10 years

A new study wrapping up all the facts and figures about Monaco’s Education System over the past year was recently published by the Monegasque Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (IMSEE).

Student population exceeds 6,400 for the first first time since 2012-13

Overall, Monaco’s education system had 6,448 students enrolled from kindergarten to final year at the start of the 2023-2024 school year (excluding the Princess Grace Dance Academy and AS Monaco Academy). The number of students increased by 110 students, or +1.7%. 66.1% of students are in public establishments and 33.9% in private schools. Private schools saw +106 more students (i.e. +5.1%) (particularly due to the new British School of Monaco). Public schools saw only 4 more students (+0.1%). The distribution between boys and girls is balanced with 51.1% and 48.9% respectively. The student population exceeded 6,400 for the first first time since 2012-13.

The François dAssise – Nicolas Barré Institution Nicolas Barré, remains the establishment with the highest number of students (1,170 students, or 18.1% of all students). It is followed by the Collège Charles III (1,128 students) then by the Lycée Albert 1er (824) and the International School of Monaco (793). Elementary Schools (from CP to CM2) welcome 2,031 students or 31.5% overall.

Almost 70% of students live in Monaco

Nearly 7 out of 10 students live in the Principality, slightly more than in 2022-23. Almost 4,400 students reside in Monaco, or 68.2%. 31.0% of students live in the Alpes-Maritimes, including 23.5% in municipalities bordering the Principality (Beausoleil, Cap-dAil, La Turbie, Roquebrune- Cap-Martin). The proportion of children living in Monaco is higher in private schools than in public schools (respectively 74.2% and 65.2%).

37.6% of students are of French nationality

Over one-third of students in Monaco are of French nationality (about 2,500 or 37.6%), followed by Monegasques (1,328 or 19.8%) and Italians (852 or 12.7%). Six other nationalities have more than 100 people.

Monegasque and French students are mainly educated in the public sector (respectively 78.9% and 77.2%), as well as the Italians (55.6%). Conversely, the Anglo-Saxon nationalities are more present in the private sector: 73.1% of the 361 British students.
