Association

Our school is managed by the Parent Body Association of the French International School of Guangzhou which all newly enrolled parents are automatically members of. According to the French association law of 1901 for non-profit organizations, the daily life of said association is managed by statutes which are available to view by all members upon request to the administration. According to said statutes, the main institutions who participate in the management and operation of our school are the Board of Management, the School Committee, and the School Principal. Every October, the annual General Meeting takes place to vote on the members of the Board of Management for the ongoing school year as well as the parent representatives who will be attending the School Committees throughout the school year.
