The elementary school aims at having each child succeed. Mastering French and fundamental abilities (reading, writing, counting) is central, as well as learning a second language.
In elementary schooll, children begin developing their own personality, becoming autonomous and socialising.
As with each Lycée Français, the LFIA puts an emphasis on being open, on the one hand to the language and culture of the country in which it is located, and on the other hand, to the cultures of its pupils.
