Pre registration

Registration of a new student and / or maintenance of a student at the French International School of Bangkok implies the unconditional acceptance of the school financial rules.

 

The Comité de Gestion reserves the right to modify any time the financial conditions.

 

In case of re-registration at the LFIB, this fee is not charged if the student has left the school for less than 24 months. But contrarily, if the student has left the school for 24 months or more, half of the registration fees must be paid. This timescale is calculated between the date of dropout and the date of (re)schooling. The re-registration fee will not be reimbursed and the file fee of 5,000 THB is required.

 

Students currently study at the LFIB do not need to submit the registration file each year. They will be automatically enrolled for the next school year. Parents inform the administration when students will permanently leave the school.

Additional Information

Primary :

 

Enrollment for students from CP to CM2 who are not studying in the French school system have to take placement tests in French and mathematics.

 

Secondary :

 

Enrollment for students in secondary classes from 6ème to Terminale who are not studying in the French school system have to take placement tests in French and mathematics. Each test takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes per subject.

 

The placement tests also concern:

– students who have not followed the official programs of the French National Education,

– students who have not attended in public school in France, or private school in France that holds a contract with the French Ministry of Education

– students who have not followed the French curriculum through CNED (French National Center of Long-Distance Learning, whole school year),

– students who are not learning in a school holding a contract with the AEFE (French Agency for Education Abroad) or directly managed by the AEFE.

 

In order to pass these tests, it is necessary to pay the file fees (5000 THB / student). These fees is not refundable but will be deducted from the registration fees if students are accepted.

The calculator is allowed for mathematics tests for the class 3ème, 2nde and 1ère.

Students can take these tests at the LFIB.

Parents also have the possibility to find an institution that would accept to organize them from distance. These tests will be sent by scan to the organized institution and they must be returned to the LFIB by scan. These tests will be corrected by the LFIB teaching team. The results will then be communicated to the parents.

Principle: due to the difference between the south rhythm and the north rhythm, students will be registered in the same class of the school year that started in the south rhythm.

Exception: A move to the upper class is only possible if the headmaster of the actual school certifies in a written document (attestation) that the student has the level to move to the next class taking into account what was observed during the current school year. This certificate must be provided no later than June 30th, which is the equivalent of “avis de passage” of the north rhythm.
