French School of Amman


Recommended Posts

Our little school has grown. The high school moved into a new building in 2013 the elementary school renovation was finished in 2014, and modern facilities are available from pre-school to 12th grade. All these changes mean that the school offers its students optimal conditions for teaching and learning.

Apart from the buildings, we also offer a French, English, and Arabic multilingual project that focuses on the progressive learning of several languages and their cultures from the last year of pre-school. This ambitious project created meticulously in 2013 and launched at the start of the 2014 academic year is now proving successful at the start of the 2015 year. Knowledge of foreign languages opens doors around the world, allows us to understand others and their differences, and adapt to diversity. It is also a valuable asset for studies and future careers.

The future of the young people in our care is what drives our projects and our actions. A future based on universal human values, a future of solidarity, an environmentally conscious future, a future to be reinvented through innovation and commitment, because this is the 21st century. This is our children’s century. Albert Camus said, "Real generosity towards the future consists of giving everything to the present." So we give, we give everything, we give our young people the tools to develop their analytical thinking, a critical mind, a sense of initiative, inventiveness, and citizenship. Prepared in this way, our students ultimately stand out as budding ambassadors. They stand out at the meeting of High School Student Council delegates of all the French high schools worldwide, at the award of Major Excellency Scholarships, and finally when the results of the baccalaureate reveal a 100% pass rate, 86% of which are distinctions.

With a French baccalaureate under their belts, which serves as an international passport and is recognized throughout the world, our students are all accepted into the country and course of their choice – in France, of course, but also in England, Germany, Belgium, the United States, Canada, and Lebanon, among others. We are pleased to welcome young people from twenty different nationalities who will remain in contact through the alumni association network of French schools worldwide. We are proud of our joint achievements and confident about the future we plan together.

The LFA is a rapidly changing school and is putting all of its energy into updating the school development plan and projects.

The French School of Amman, progression, and transformation, A slow but regular transformation. A small elementary school was built in 1972 near Akleh Hospital and later near Addastour in the Djebel Amman district. It operated under the CNED and obtained accreditation 10 years later in 1982. The accreditation continued from 1997 to 2001, with each grade (42 students in 2002) created gradually, then 2007 to 2009 for the recent secondary school (25 students in 2005).

It moved to its current premises in Their Ghobar with 150 students on January 7, 1990, the year that the Jordanian Ministry of Education recognized the school. The inauguration took place on June 13, 1990. At the start of 1996, the French government bought the land and the school buildings and undertook renovation works during that same summer. In 1996-1997, the Franco-Jordanian cooperation agreement mentioned the school.

The French School of Amman is an international, accredited, and officially appointed institution. The education provided conforms to the programs, educational objectives, and organizational rules in France for public education institutions, as defined by the French Ministry of National Education and followed in all schools in the network of schools offering the French program worldwide. The school prepares for the same exams and certifications as the public schools: the Baccalaureate and the Diplôme National du Brevet (the national diploma awarded in 9th grade).

Students of over 20 nationalities are represented from pre-school to 12th grade they enrich and are the pride of French institutions overseas. A melting pot of nationalities, the school welcomes the children of diplomats, embassy staff, researchers, executives of companies, and international organizations who are all faithful to the French educational system. We are honored that 26% of Jordanian families have selected our school.
