EFI – École Française Internationale de Phnom Penh offers French and English bilingual education, from Nursery to High 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 and the curriculum of Cambridge Assessment International Education, in two languages: 60% of the classes are in French and 40% are in English.

Since School Year 2021-2022, EFI is accredited by Cambridge Assessment International Education and contracted with CNED – Centre National d’Enseignement à Distance.
Since the beginning of 2023, EFI is supported by AEFE, the Agency for French Education Abroad, during its accreditation process. AEFE is in charge to coordinate a network of more than 500 schools all around the World.

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 almost 180 students spread over 16 classes from Nursery (from 18 months) to Grade 11 (16 years old).

From the age of 4, our students also have the opportunity of taking up a third language, either Khmer or Mandarin. From the age of 12, they can also choose Spanish and Latin.
