EFI Bucharest


The École Française Internationale, Bucharest is a French educational establishment, hosting pupils from preschool to high school, and is part of the Odyssey school network.

The EFI Bucharest is a trilingual school (French, English and Romanian), providing education in accordance with the French national curriculum.

The educational model of the EFI Bucharest combines French academic excellence and the dynamism of English-speaking schools. This combination of the “best of both worlds” is delivered by a team of French and international teachers, carefully selected to support every one of our pupils on their paths to success.

The EFI Bucharest welcomes pupils from preschool (PS, 3 years) to the 3rd year of primary school cycle 2 (CE2, 7-8 years of age). Every year, higher classes are opened up, and our pupils are able to continue their education up until high school.

After the preschool and primary classes, the EFI will open:

  • Its secondary school in September 2023
  • The high school in September 2026

Our pupils will therefore be able to study for the French baccalaureate (international option) and language certifications, which will open up the doors to the best universities around the world.

The school comprises:

1 historic 1,500 m2 building

Spacious and modern classrooms, fitted out with IT equipment

1 multi-sports hall

1 large secure playground

1 dining room

1 media library

Any successful education requires a fundamental foundation of knowledge, but also of trust, because children only learn well when they feel safe, supported and understood. In partnership with their families, our role is therefore to support our pupils in their intellectual and personal development, to guide them, to encourage them and to motivate them to surpass themselves.
