The LFIR is fully accredited by the French Ministry of Education and regularly audited to guarantee high standards.
100% of school fees are spent on the school, and the Association of Parents oversees the school management. This unique set-up ensures that decisions are made according to what is best for the children, the families, and the school.
6. KIND AND ATTENTIVE
A recent audit by a school inspector from the French Education Ministry concluded that “the students are happy to learn, in a climate of trust and welcoming premises”, “each student benefits from personalised support”, and “genuine kindness and attentive care is given to the children”.
The school excels at creating a supportive learning environment for all children, and small class sizes allow for personalised and flexible teaching.
The audit found the teachers were “happy to work in the school and proud of the work that is carried out”. At the heart of the LFIR is its team, from these experienced and committed teachers to its dedicated support staff.
9. COMMITTED TO MYANMAR
The LFIR has grown from the French school which opened in 1993. Its director Valérie has been teaching children in Myanmar for over 25 years ; other teachers have been living in the country for several years. The LFIR was the first school to reopen for in-person classes in 2021, with all teachers based in Yangon.
10. AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
A wide variety of extra-curricular activities are offered starting from preschool, including sports, arts and technology. These are a great opportunity for students to discover new disciplines and develop new interests. They take place within the school grounds and are supervised by LFIR assistant teachers, providing convenience and peace of mind to parents.
