Welcome to the Lower School
Congratulations on taking the first steps in your child’s journey of lifelong learning. At French American International School, our youngest minds steep in two languages from day one, averaging 80% French-language instruction through the second grade. Teachers pay close attention to the linguistic and socio-emotional development of each student, warmly encouraging critical thinking, active exchange, and cooperation. On the one hand, students learn to share and wait their turn; on the other, they ask questions for themselves and express their thoughts independently. Furthermore, our Maternelle (Early Childhood Center) at 1155 Page Street stimulates the learning process: large, sun-drenched open classrooms along with expansive green areas blur the line between work and play. By the time they complete the 5th grade, our seamlessly bilingual students enter middle school with strong senses of curiosity, collaboration, and autonomy.
To visit our Maternelle at 1155 Page Street or our main campus at 150 Oak Street, please contact our Admissions Office.
In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you.
