It is led and managed directly by the school parents via its Parents’ Association “The Association for the Development and Support of the French School in Zagreb”. The Association is a non-profit organisation also registered under Croatian law, to which the administrative and financial management of the school is entrusted. At FISZ, ultimately, it is the parents who make the school and who retain full control over its decision-making, strategy and development.
The school also operates under contract with the AEFE, the Agency for French Education Abroad, which guarantees its compliance with the rules, regulations and expectations of the French Ministry of Education and provides expert support in many areas. In particular the AEFE appoints and remunerates the school’s Principal to whom is entrusted the pedagogical and educational leadershipof the school as well as its daily supervision.
This flexibility and triple combination of assets of being an independent private institution, associatively led by its members, receiving the backing in expertise and resources of the French State via the AEFE account in great part for the success of our school.
The school is always on the lookout for new parent volunteers to join its managerial structure and welcomes all applications.
