The Lycée French School is an esteemed institution that forms a part of the AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad) network. Situated in the heart of Jerusalem, it is housed within a splendid neoclassical building dating back to the late 19th century, which is owned by the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the Apparition.


Functioning as a public school, the LFJ provides comprehensive education from kindergarten (starting at the age of 3) up to the final year of high school, known as terminale. Embracing a robust multilingualism policy, the school predominantly delivers instruction in French. However, in the kindergarten phase, parents are granted the freedom to choose English or Arabic as the second language. Subsequently, in first grade, students commence their education in three languages: Arabic, English, and French.

Upon entering the 5th grade, students are offered the opportunity to incorporate a fourth language, namely Hebrew or Spanish, into their curriculum. Examinations specifically designed for these languages are conducted as part of the baccalaureate, the French high school diploma.

The French School adeptly caters to students at all levels, encompassing:

  • Kindergarten (Petite section, KG1, KG2)

  • Elementary school (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades)

  • Middle school (6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grades)

  • High school (10th, 11th, and 12th, culminating in the final year)

Each class consists of a small number of students, with an average of approximately twenty per class. The total student population amounts to roughly 270 individuals. The French high school in Jerusalem is an approved establishment which allows our students to pursue their international higher education.
