école Internationale is a private English-medium international school in Kandy, Sri Lanka.
The school was founded in 1980 by Mrs. Manel Rajapakse 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.
In 2014, the school announced an insurance policy agreement with Ceylinco Life, allowing students to continue their education at the school in the event of the premature death or disability of their parents.
The school uses curricula from the British and American education systems at primary school level. The senior students are steered towards the British curriculum leading to Edexcel International GCSE, GCE AS and A2 qualifications.
