The French School of Shanghai (French: Lycée Français de Shanghai, simplified Chinese: 上海法国学校; traditional Chinese: 上海法國學校; pinyin: Shànghǎi Fǎguó Xuéxiào) is a private, international school in Shanghai, China, with one campus in the Qingpu District and one campus in Pudong. The Pudong Campus is on the property of the Shanghai Gold Apple Bilingual School.
Students range from 3 to 18 years of age and must be of French nationality or already have been taught under the French system. It forms part of the international network of French schools managed by the French government through the Agence pour l'enseignement français à l'étranger (Agency for French Teaching Abroad), a national administrative body.
In 2005, LFS and the German School Shanghai completed a combined "EuroCampus" for their students in Qingpu, Shanghai. The LFS comprises more than 800 French students.
In 2008, LFS opened a new satellite school in Pudong, Shanghai. The school was opened as a primary school and will grow into secondary school year by year (completion of middle school, collège, by 2012). As of the 2010-2011 school year, the Pudong campus has students from preschool to troisième (ninth grade). All students in the secondary school in Pudong follow the English/French bilingual curriculum.
The education offered is equivalent to the education in France, and students sit the French Baccalaureate (Baccalauréat) at the end of Terminale. Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year, students who have followed the appropriate course will have the opportunity to take the OIB (Option International du Baccalauréat) in either Chinese or English. Preparation for this option requires study of certain subjects in the chosen foreign language. Alternatively, students may choose to enter the European section which includes extra study of English and a history and geography course taught in English.
In 2008, LFS opened two bilingual sections in the primary and middle schools at the QingPu campus. Parents can choose from dual-language English and French, French and Chinese, or the classic French program. Students in the bilingual sections are taught on a split timetable with half of their lessons in French and the other half in English or Chinese.
