The Lycée Français International Charles de Gaulle de Pékin (LFIPCDG; Chinese: 北京法国国际学校) is a French international school in Chaoyang District, Beijing. It has primary, junior high school (collège) and sixth-form/senior high school (lycée) levels.

It was previously the Lycée Français International de Pékin (LFIP; "The International French School of Beijing" ) in French, and years earlier it was the Lycée Français de Pékin (Chinese: 北京法国学校).[2]

The school first opened in 1967.[3]

In 2014 the school had 950 students. At one time the school had 1,050 students.[4] In 2019 it had 826 students.[5]

As of 2017[update] its students originate from over 50 countries: 75% originate from Europe, 17% originate from Africa, 4.5% originate from the Americas, and 3.5% originate from Asia and Oceania.[3]

Campus locations

Since 10 May 2016, there is only one campus: in JingShunDongJie, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100600, China.

The campus opening ceremony was on 16 May 2016.[6]

It was designed by a French architect, Jacques Ferrier; the total budget was 23.9 million euros (231 million Hong Kong dollars), with 16.5 million for building costs as well as other funds for a 40-year lease. The building has measures to prevent effects from Beijing's air pollution.[4]

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus occurred on 19 October 2014. It has room for 1,500 students;[7] this is an increase by 30% from the total capacity of the previous facilities.[4] The current campus has an area of 37,000 square metres (400,000 sq ft), with 21,000 square metres (230,000 sq ft) occupied by buildings.[7]

Prior to May 2016 there were three campuses: one for nursery/preschool (maternelle) classes, one for primary and junior high school (collège), and the senior high school (lycée) facilities at Chaoyang Community College (Chinese: 朝阳社区学院; pinyin: Cháoyáng Shèqū Xuéyuàn).[8] The principal school campus was the primary and junior high campus.[9]
