Lycee Amchit is a private school that provides kindergarten, primary, complementary and secondary teaching.[1] The main campus is located in the town of Amsheet, Lebanon. It covers an area of 10,000 square metres.


The School was founded in 1977[2] during the Lebanese Civil War by a psychologist (Claire Gedeon) and a specialized educator (Georges Gedeon) who fled from the war in the capital Beirut and settled in Amsheet.


Lycee Amchit educates students from the age of 3 years. The primary languages are Arabic and French. English is taught as a secondary language.

Although secular, the school offers courses in religious education. Computer courses are taught starting from the third year of the kindergarten cycle. Students with educational difficulties benefit from the assistance of a psychologist, a speech therapist and additional courses.

Extracurricular activities[edit]
