Academic excellence

The academic excellence of a French school

The French school curriculum is recognised worldwide for its high quality and opens the way, immediately after the baccalaureate, to the world’s best universities, including those in the English-speaking world.

Whatever his or her nationality, every pupil entering the French International School of Antwerp will be guaranteed a comprehensive French education, from kindergarten to sixth form, and the opportunity to prepare for French state diplomas under the same conditions as other French schools in France and across the globe.

French is the school’s reference language and the primary teaching language. English and Flemish account for up to half of teaching time. All our teachers are native speakers.
