The small French school of Sulaymaniyah (Kurdistan of Iraq) was born in the heart of the city in September 2013. It then counted fifty children, happy to have access to education and French culture. Since then, the school has obtained the certification by the French Ministry of Education, and It now has over 200 students, from kindergarten through to 9th grade . These last years have been rich in events, between wars (daesh), recurrent political and economic crises and, more recently, earthquakes. Despite everything, the French teaching team composed of excellent professionals who pursue their task with enthusiasm. They feel happy to teach children living in a particularly troubled region of the world. Our motto: "We learn better when we are happy".
