One of the so-called Grand Schools in France, École Normale Supérieure is considered one of the leading higher education institutions in Paris and is well regarded internationally. The institution aimed to cultivate professionals from all backgrounds and social classes, who would be equipped to participate in the ideological debates and establishment of the New Republic. ENS has then developed a positive reputation for producing well known French political figures, public servants, and academia.
