As a private not for profit school located in the leafy surroundings of Fratrovac not far from the city centre and delivering a high quality educational offer the success of the French school in Zagreb was immediate and has not ceased growing.
At the beginning a small operation the school was managed by the “Mission Laique Française”. As it grew and as a Eurocampus project was formed between the French and German schools present in Zagreb the French school’s management needs changed leading to the creation in 2005 of an association registered under Croatian law: the “Association pour le Dévelopement et le Soutien de l’École Française de Zagreb”
This Association has been managing the school ever since. The Association is constituted of all current school parents who are members by right and who elect a management board, the “Comité de Gestion”. This management board heads the school in all administrative and financial affairs while the school principal is responsible for all pedagogical questions.
Since 2005 the FISZ is under contract with the AEFE, the Agency for French Education Abroad, which is responsible for monitoring and managing the network of French School abroad as well as certifying that the teaching provided by the school complies with the demands, curricula, teaching objectives and organizational rules of the French education system.
