History

The French School of Bali, an Indonesian legal foundation (yayasan) and a French-approved establishment recognized by the French National Education, a partner of the Agency for French Education Abroad, has seen significant development and transformation since its inception in 1991.

The LFB has welcomed in the last years three new facilities, including a new kindergarten, in Umalas, in a tranquil and green environment.

It has a well-designed and efficient structure, as well as modern and high-quality facilities ideal for all of our students’ education.

Mission

The LFB, located in the center of the Asia-Pacific area, has grown quickly in recent years to accommodate over 400 students from kindergarten to Baccalaureate, including French, dual nationals, and numerous third nationalities from over 25 countries.

It promotes hospitality, the greatest education for all students, global awareness, and success for everyone.

As a result, the LFB creates high-quality linguistic teaching methods in a variety of languages to assist each student in succeeding while supporting a varied school population, including non-French-speaking students.

The goal is to lead the School to a level of excellence through outstanding performance in assessments and examinations.

Four strategic vectors have been chosen for the French School of Bali project:

  1. Developing superior language skills and raising global awareness
  2. Maximizing each student’s potential
  3. Guaranteeing personal growth, well-being, and achievement for all
  4. Promoting sustainable development education
