The French International School of Bucharest (EFI Bucharest) is a new international school which opened in September 2019. This year, the school will open classes ranging from pre-kindergarden (3 years old) to year 2 (8 years old). The school will gradually open additional classes until the end of secondary school with the French Baccalaureate Examination. EFI Bucarest combines French academic excellence and the dynamism of anglo-saxon and international schools. This combination of the best of two worlds is a unique pedagogical model. Supported by leading French institutions, EFI Bucharest belongs to the Odyssey School Network, whose founders are pioneers in bilingual education in France and recognised for their track record in introducing educational innovation such as active learning. All Odyssey schools are operated in accordance with their fundamental principles regarding academic methods and accomplishment which are based on caring and openness.
