Lycee Louis Massignon d’Abou Dhabi (LLM) French Private School Abu Dhabi tuition fee structure and general information

LLM is often thought of as the French School in Abu Dhabi, however it is not the only one. See also the Francais Theodore Monod school in Abu Dhabi, a Lebanese-French school, and the Ecole Français Abu Dhabi operated by the Bin Salem Group, which is confusing since LLM is sometimes referred to as Ecole Francaise Abou Dhabi.

  • Updated admission, registration, tuition fees information not supplied. Please send fee structure to education@dubaifaqs.com.
  • 2008-2009 fee range AED 13,000-23,950 per annum.
