The French International School MLF Danielle Mitterrand (French: École Danielle-Mitterrand, Arabic: المدرسة الفرنسية في اربيل‎, Sorani Kurdish: قوتابخانەی نێودەوڵەتی فەڕەنسی دانیێل میتێران‎) is a French international school in Erbil, Kurdistan Regional Government, Iraq.[1] The French and KRG governments made an agreement to have this school established. Currently it serves up to collège (junior high school).[2] It is affiliated with the Mission laïque française.

Dr. Frédéric Tissot, the consul general of France in Erbil, stated that the purpose of the school is to improve education in Kurdistan. The namesake of the school, Danielle Mitterrand, is known as the "mother of Kurds."[3] In 2009 the school had 70 students taught by French teachers. The annual tuition, as of that year, is $3,000 per student. There are English, Arabic, and Kurdish classes available.[4]
