1Will my child be bothered by languages?
The welcoming strategies of all students arriving with very different linguistic backgrounds, as well as the differentiation within modern language classes, allow each student to quickly find his or her place, to be at ease in the classes, and to progress very quickly. Multilingual projects and an active, lively and motivating pedagogy allow for rapid upgrading.
2Why is school so expensive when it is free in France?
The school is not free in France, it has a higher cost than that of French schools around the world, a cost that is paid for by the community through taxes. Tuition fees are assessed as accurately as possible in order to put the school in a position of financial equilibrium by offering students the best possible teaching conditions. As a result, the LFB is certainly one of the cheapest foreign schools in Bali. Families who are experiencing financial difficulties with school fees should contact the Consulate to consider applying for a scholarship, or the LFB to consider a staggering plan.
3Why don't students wear uniforms at the LFB?
For the time being, this is not the choice of the school community represented by the Governing Board and does not correspond to the needs of French schools in France or abroad, nor to the special needs of LFB students. Sportswear, which is functional, practical, comfortable and carries the LFB logo, is often worn by our students. It is mandatory for all outings, and then replaces advantageously a uniform.
4Is it possible with the French baccalaureate to integrate Anglo-Saxon universities?
The French baccalaureate is of a very high standard, higher than the international baccalaureat (IB) and allows our students to enter Anglo-Saxon universities, provided they have a TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language) or Cambridge IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) certification. These certifications are prepared at the LFBfor students who wish to do so. Many Anglo-Saxon universities are looking for students from the French baccalaureate who represent a sure value.
5Can my child leave school before discharge, can he or she be absent for exceptional leave?
There is no compulsory schooling before the age of 6, so there is a certain tolerance for kindergarten students. From the first grade onwards, early departures or leaves of absence outside the periods provided for this purpose are generally prejudicial and are therefore strongly discouraged. It should also be noted that the allocation of state scholarships is subject to school attendance.
