École Normale Supérieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines

The École Normale Supérieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines, or ENS-LSH, is one of the two French "École normale supérieure" (ENS), an elite French "grande école" located in Lyon (69).

History

It comes from the reorganization of two Écoles normales supérieures founded in 1880 and 1882, and formerly located in Fontenay-aux-Roses and Saint-Cloud, near Paris. Firstly male students went to Saint-Cloud and female to Fontenay-aux Roses, but after 1981, the schools became mixed. In 1986, in the frame of French decentralisation, the scientific students moved to Lyon in the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, and, in 2000, the literary students followed them in Lyon in the [http://www.ens-lsh.fr École normale supérieure Lettres et sciences humaines] .
