Established in 1983, Lycée Français International de Mumbai (The French International School of Mumbai) is the city’s only bilingual school.
Following the French Curriculum supervised and accredited by AEFE (The Agency for French Education Abroad), each LFIM student has the opportunity and flexibility to attend and continue his or her education within 532 schools located across 139 different countries.
Classes are taught both in French and English, with two dedicated teachers leading each class from Pre-Kindergarten till the 5th Grade. From 6th Grade onwards, classes are taught predominantly in French to reinforce language skills. From Grade 7, students choose between Spanish and German as a third language.
Located at Lower Parel, merely a stone’s throw away from most business parks and easily accessible to both South Mumbai as well as the city’s suburbs, LFIM remains the school of choice to most expatriate families and parents who wish for their child to study a curriculum that promotes analytical thinking while simultaneously attaining fluency in both French and English.
Targeting a low student to teacher ratio per class (7:1), students are given individual attention by their teachers, ensuring no doubts are left uncleared and maximizing class participation. This empowers students in asking questions without hesitation.
LFIM is officially accredited by the French Ministry of Education and finds itself in the company of more than 61,900 schools in France, along with the 532 schools of the AEFE network. France consistently ranks amongst the top 10 countries in the world for higher education, and LFIM is your child’s gateway to it. With the recent signing of agreements between India and France, the ability to study in either country is now easier than ever before.
Successful implementation of online classes, at the very onset of the pandemic, ensured our students didn’t miss out on their classes. Teaching Kindergarten from home? We’ve done it! We’ve developed a Health Protocol on campus that ensures the safety of the students for when classes resume in person as per Government guidelines.
Parents work hand in hand with our teachers and administrative staff to ensure the school functions smoothly. With parents comprising the Managing Committee and the School Council, at LFIM, transparency is key.
Transcending expectations and convention of what a school should be, LFIM strives to provide learning that enriches every moment of our students’ lives.
