September, 2008

Pudong’s French community is busy celebrating the opening of the Ecole Française de Shanghai new campus. The opening of the new Pudong campus is to meet the growing number of registrations over the past three years, which exceeded the maximum capacity of EFS Eurocampus during the 2007-2008 school year.

Since its creation in 1995, the École Française de Shanghai (EFS) has become an important part of the French expat community in Shanghai. EFS is a private institution managed by a Board of Trustees elected by the Parents Association of the school and accredited by the French Ministry of National Education.

In planning for expansion, it quickly became apparent to the management team that the best option was to open a new campus in a dynamic Pudong neighborhood where many French companies are located. EFS found the perfect location for its new Pudong Campus last spring: a six-storey building within the Shanghai Gold Apple Bilingual School, a Chinese school located at 1555 Jufeng Road. It features 15 sunny classrooms, three outdoor spaces, a library, a 70 square meter gymnasium and a music room.

The Pudong campus can accommodate up to 350 children. Approximately 90 pre-school and elementary children walked through the doors of their new school for the first time on September 3.

As the French school is intensely focused on reinforcing language teaching, students from preschool to high school can now choose between the regular curriculum and two new exciting and innovative programs: the Bilingual French/ English program where half of classes are taught in French and the other half are taught in English and the Intensive Chinese program where more hours are dedicated to the study of Chinese language and culture.

A school bus service is available for students at the Pudong campus as well as the downtown campus.
