EFI – École Française Internationale de Phnom Penh offers French and English bilingual education, from Nursery to Middle School.
EFI – École Française Internationale is a French-English bilingual school based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia since August 2016. We are a private school that follows the programs set out by the French Ministry of Education, in two languages: 60% of the classes are in French and 40% are in English.
Our students are immersed in a teaching environment specially adapted to suit the diversity of their cultures, languages and their academic journey. The structure of this environment makes it possible to combine the needs of the students in terms of language acquisition, while also setting them on the best academic path to achieve their individual prospects.
EFI shares a campus with CIS – Canadian International School (an English-language school approved by the province of Alberta, Canada) – with which we have developed many partnerships. Our students are therefore immersed in an English-speaking campus that is modern and located right in the heart of Phnom Penh on Diamond Island (Koh Pich).
Today, EFI welcomes 155 students spread over 10 classes from Nursery to Grade 6. Four new classes will be opened at the beginning of the next school year, including a Grade 7 Class.
From the age of four, our students also have the opportunity of taking up a third language, either Khmer or Chinese Mandarin.
