If the student comes from a French private educational system, the family has to provide an attendance certificate from the school, indicating that the school is "under a contract of association with the state".
We welcome non-French speaking children up to 12 years old. From 6 years old, students who don’t master the French language must undergo an assessment to validate their application. For more information, please contact us at: welcome@ifs.edu.sg
