Founded in 1859, Ecole Francaise Ferdinand de Lesseps is the oldest French educational establishment on the Iberian Peninsula. Enriched by its long history, the school continues to pursue its academic mission and promote both local and European culture. 580 children attend the French School Ferdinand de Lesseps starting from the first year of nursery school (3 years old) up to fifth grade (11 years old). It is a private institution, part of the AEFE network (Agency for French Education Abroad). In accordance with the agreement signed with the AEFE, the school strictly adheres to the syllabus set by the French Ministry of Education.
