Recently relocated to a beautiful new campus in Thao Dien (formerly used by The American School)!

A range of amazing facilities allows us to offer a well-rounded education, with more room and equipment for the children to explore and grow.

Accompanying our children in their learnings all the way from Nursery to Grade 5 (Grade 4 in Sept 2020, then Grade 5 in Sept 2021), our bilingual offer in French & English unique in Ho Chi Minh, is preparing our students to then continue in the French system, or in any other educational system.

La Petite Ecole, French group of bilingual schools in Asia, has opened its doors in Ho Chi Minh City, last September 2017, in the serene and cosy district of Thao Dien.

In Singapore, where it has been established since 2012, the school is fully accredited by the French Ministry of Education. The French curriculum is taught by two native, certified teachers, for each class.

In Ho Chi Minh City, La Petite Ecole welcomes children from 12 months old in nursery, then from 3 to 6 years old in preschool and finally from 6 to 10 years old (Grade4) in elementary school. We offer a truly bilingual experience: about 60% of the curriculum is taught in French, and 40% in English, which is exceptional in Ho Chi Minh City.

Children of all origins are welcome in this truly multicultural school, where both local language and culture are embraced.

La Petite Ecole places the child at the core of the learning process: they play, build, learn and develop their self-awareness. A unique and innovative pedagogical system promotes the independence, curiosity, and motivation of the child. A special programme supports children with little knowledge of French, providing them with extra individual attention, and helping them reach a good linguistic level faster.

A human-scale, benevolent family school where all nationalities are welcome!
