Created in 1967, the Lycée Français Louis-Charles Damais is a private school with parental management approved by the Agency for Teaching of French Abroad (AEFE).
The association, which owns and governs the school, is a non-profit organization (Yayasan status according to Indonesian regulations) in which the parents of students are ex-officio members (1 vote per child) with the corporate purpose of:
• ensuring the sustainability of a French-model education in Jakarta,
• promoting cultural meetings and exchanges within the French speaking community in Indonesia.
The Lycée Français of Jakarta has seen an important stage in its development following the signing in 2002 of an agreement with the Agency for the Teaching of French Abroad (AEFE), of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
