ecole internationale was founded in 1980 at 85, Lady Gordon’s drive, with a handful of foreign students. To accommodate the increased intake of local students, a new branch was opened in 1991 at Digana for senior grades. The junior school remained in Kandy.

At primary level, “ecole” adopts a unique blend of British and American education systems. At senior level, students are steered towards the British curriculum leading to IGCSE, AS and A2 qualifications.

The high standards maintained at ecole ensure that students receive the best quality education. Over the years, “ecole” has produced many world prize winners and hundreds of “ecole” students have joined prestigious universities such as Cambridge, Princeton, Haward and London School of Economics.

“ecole” also offers wide range of extra curricular activities including sports, music, literature, drama and other activities. The academic facilities provided for students include fully equipped Biology, Physics and Chemistry labs, a computer lab, reference library with internet access and multimedia based education.
