The school is located at Cordoba Hills neighborhood, near the village of Kafr Joum, 15 km south-west of Aleppo city, near the Aleppo-Damascus highway.[1] It is a large educational complex consisting of several buildings and sports facilities. The Lycée Français d'Alep, along with the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle de Damas (opened in 2008) are the only French schools in Syria which are accredited by the French Ministry of National Education.[2]
