Who are we ?


Phoenix is Fonshin’s French section.

Fonshin’s founders have over four generations of experience in education. They opened their first school in Shanghai in 2004. Their second school was opened in Xuhui District in 2009 and was built specifically with the French community in mind. This is where Le Phoenix began.

Created in June 2009, Le Phoenix is located in the former French Concession. It was started by a group of French parents who had already launched two other bilingual programs in Shanghai, in response to the French community’s need for a bilingual French and Chinese learning environment with an introduction to the English language. Le Phoenix welcomes children with at least one French-speaking parent. Our students range from 2 to 6 years old for pre-school. In order to maintain a high-quality learning environment, classes have an average limit of 15 pupils for Kindergarten.

Our teaching program spends half of the time in Chinese and the other half in French, along with an introduction to English.

Le Phoenix is currently affiliated to the worldwide network of the Mission Laique Française (MLF) who aims to spread the French language and culture by means of foreign schooling.

The school is recognized by the A.E.F.E. (Association of the French Enseigment in Foreign countries).
