History[edit]

On 7 July 1899, a part of the territory of Villiers-sur-Marne was detached and merged with a part of the territory of La Queue-en-Brie and a part of the territory of Chennevières-sur-Marne to create the commune of Le Plessis-Trévise.

There are seven preschools and seven elementary schools.[2]

There are two junior high schools, Collège Pierre et Marie Curie, and Collège Les Prunais.[5]

Twin towns[edit]

Villiers-sur-Marne is twinned with Entroncamento in Portugal and Friedberg in Germany; until November 2011, it was also twinned with Bishop's Stortford in the United Kingdom, when the English town controversially cut its links with Villiers-sur-Marne, as well as Friedberg.[6]
