Lycée Pierre Mendès France
The Lycée Pierre Mendès France is a French-medium lycée (high school) in Mutuelleville, Tunis, Tunisia. It was founded in 1956 as an annex of the Lycée Carnot of Tunis, and originally named the "Lycée Francais de Mutuelleville". It was renamed in honour of politician Pierre Mendès-France on the occasion of President François Mitterrand's 1983 visit to Tunisia.
President Jacques Chirac visited the school in December, 2003. He caused some controversy when he told the students "Wearing a veil, whether we want it or not, is a sort of aggression that is difficult for us to accept."
