Testimonials

What are others saying about us? We believe that the education your child receives at FASP is unparalleled. But don’t take our word for it; please read below a few of the kind words our students and their parents have said about their experiences at our school:

We enrolled our two daughters in FASP when our oldest was four (pre-K) and our youngest was three (preschool). My husband’s native language was French but both had minimal French speaking ability when they started. It has been a source of great joy to see their French flourish. At the end of her first year at FASP, our oldest daughter introduced their school play in French – which took us completely by surprised. We both felt quite emotional about seeing our baby up on stage speaking French. The school feels like a caring, family environment but I also appreciate a general sense of order and tranquility which seems to pervade the classrooms. We really applaud Corinne and her entire team for the organization they have built – which seems to be getting better and stronger every year. We feel blessed to have this school available to our children. Karen Hong

Choosing a bilingual school is one of the best decisions that parents can make for their kids regardless of whether or not they speak the language at home. FASP is a great place to prepare our children for the future–educationally and morally. I have a third grader who has been at the school since pre-k, and another one to start at the pre-k this year. We are an international family with several languages at home and I could not think of a better school to send my kids to. Teachers are open and available to the parents. Administration is friendly, transparent and very pråofessional. My third grader is fluent in both languages and is also at par with public school kids in terms of test scores. Peride Blind

Nous avons adoré cette école à taille humaine, exigeante de par son enseignement et respectueuse des enfants et des familles. La diversité des enfants est également très appréciable. Cette école apprend aux enfants à aimer l’école et éveille leur curiosité dès le plus jeune âge. Cécile Fenaux

Our two children have been attending FASP since they were each three years old (they are now in middle school and elementary school). Although we do not speak much French at home, our children have flourished at the School due to consistently high standards and excellent teachers. Further, because it is small, the entire staff knows and cares about our children, which allows them to provide highly customized instruction and support. While we initially enrolled our children so that they would have the benefit of a bilingual education, we keep them there because it’s an excellent school in general. We highly recommend it. Cecilia Rouse

Our two children have been in pre-K at FASP for almost a year now. They started with no previous knowledge in French (or English). Both adjusted after just a few weeks and have absorbed a tremendous amount of knowledge both linguistically but also in many other ways – social interaction, art, music, pre-reading and writing. Our children are always looking forward to going to school and love their teachers, who give them the right balance of care/affection and discipline. Teaching our kids a global perspective from an early age is very important to us and we’ve been extremely happy with our choice. We would highly recommend the school, teachers and staff! MP

Equipe pédagogique de très haut niveau et très accessible. Superbe structure. Confiance absolue tant dans l’apprentissage que le bien-être des enfants. Niveau scolaire élevé. Le mixage franco-anglais-canadien apporte énormément aux enfants dans l’apprentissage de la langue de l’autre, des habitudes de vie de chacun… très très enrichissant dans tous les domaines. Famille Dubecq

Our two children are enrolled in the FASP. It is our son’s third year and our daughter’s first. We love the school and consistently have been pleased with the quality of the teachers, the family-like atmosphere and the wonderful balance between rigorous academics and activities which encourage creativity, fun and imagination. The students create the most beautiful art projects! Although we do not speak French at home, our son speaks fluently for his level and our 4-year old daughter is also speaking French now as well. In addition to a strong scholastic program, the school offers a good variety of after-school activities and sports. Recent joint activities with the adjacent American Boychoir School add even more cultural richness. We highly recommend this school for any family interested in pursuing bilingual education.

Our daughter has been attending the school since 2003 and I believe that we have made one of best choices for her education. The school combines excellent academics with the atmosphere of support, friendship and creativity. Yes, children work harder, as they need to learn subjects in two languages, but they also learn to work together, they build lasting friendships and receive a lot of love from people at the school. We are not French speakers, and we are always amazed as our daughter feels herself completely at ease and confident as we visit foreign countries. I give this school my best recommendation. LN

Our 4-year old is currently in the Pre-K 2 class at FASP. We don’t speak any French at home, and we were initially unsure of how our quiet, somewhat bashful son would adjust to the school. It’s now been 8 months since he started, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to enroll him at FASP. The teachers have been wonderful, patient, and very supportive. I am continually impressed with the information that is taught (our son is learning concepts in pre-school that I wasn’t taught until first or second grade!), including language, writing, math, and critical thinking skills. We strongly believe that FASP is giving our son the educational foundation that he needs to excel in future schooling and beyond, and, most importantly, we’re thrilled at how confident he’s become and how happy he is to go to school every day!

FASP is a true international school with mixed of local people and from around the world, with different background. Such diversity creates a very rich environment for the children who can learn important values for their future life. We also like the rigor and the pedagogy is excellent. We left with regrets for business reason; both parents and children really miss FASP! Kiyomi Tanaka-Ligner

FASP est une école à taille humaine avec des effectifs restreints ce qui facilite l’intégration de l’enfant dans un environnement culturel et linguistique qu’il ne connaissait pas précédemment. Famille Ducos

Our two children have been attending FASP for 10 years and 6 years, and we are very satisfied. The academic program is broad and solid, based on the rigorous French system. It also includes certain aspects of the American education system, including a focus on creativity and writing. Over the years, we have found the quality of the teachers to be at a consistently high level. At 12, our daughter is truly bilingual–able to understand and appreciate literature, poetry, math, and science in two languages. What a thrill to see her writing literary analysis essays in French! And our son, 8, is progressing in the same way, having developed a strong interest in reading in both languages. We would strongly recommend this school to parents who are serious about academics and who want to give their children the advantage of bilingualism. Jennifer Tobin

We were very happy with our daughters’ experience at FASP. The teachers were very caring yet instilled discipline and respect for others. By the end of two years, our oldest daughter had acquired good communication and comprehension skills in French, and mingled freely with both native and non-native French speaking classmates. Both our daughters loved the school, the teachers, and administrative staff, and considered the school their family outside home! Anonymous

When I first proposed sending our children to FASP, my husband was very skeptical. He is now a big advocate for sending our children here. The education is excellent and the care and attention paid to each child to help them with their individual strengths is a reflection of the standard of teaching and the small class sizes. The teachers know our children very well and can give us honest feedback about their progress. The staff is always very approachable and always makes time to discuss any issues that arise. The extra-curricular activities are a great new addition and the Parents Association is very active and organizes some really fun events. We are very sorry to be leaving. Stephanie Jones
