[title size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”double” sep_color=”” class=”” id=””]Our History At A Glimpse[/title][fusion_text]The French school in Johannesburg was founded in the 1960’s, but due to circumstances at the time, had to shut doors, only to reopen with a very small group of 17 students in 1970.

In 1972 the school was recognized by the French Minister of French National Education and the French government started to assist in subsidizing the school.

From sharing premises with the Deutsche Schule in Parktown in 1973 to the inauguration of the school building within the Jan Celliers premises opposite Zoo Lake in 1976, the demand for French education kept growing and the school actively pursued their objective of ‘growth’.

In 1992 The French School Lycee Jules were finally able to move to their very own premises in Morningside, providing the opportunity for all school-aged French-speaking children to be taught in optimum conditions.

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Due to the growing demand from parents in Pretoria also wanting to educate their children in French, a second Gauteng-based French campus, Miriam Makeba was established in Pretoria in 2001.
