The International French School of Sydney is approved and regulated by French authorities. This approval means that the teaching at the school conforms to French education curricula. The school is accredited to prepare students for the French secondary exams (Diplôme National du Brevet and the Baccalauréat).
Regular inspections are organised by the AEFE (Agency for French Teaching Abroad). The International French School of Sydney is also a French exam centre for the whole of Australia. The school is accredited by the French Government. Consequently, the school is allowed to access to teachers who are fully or partly financed by the French state.
The International French School of Sydney belongs to the network of the AEFE (Agency for French Teaching Abroad). This network, the largest school network in the world, enables, for example, a student to leave New York halfway through the school year and to join a class in Hong Kong or in Sydney to continue his/her schooling following the same syllabus.
