Imagine spending your formative elementary years surrounded by good friends and caring teachers from more than 30 countries, in a place of art and expression and acceptance, as you expand your budding language abilities in both French and English and gain confidence in your own voice.
That is what it is like to live and learn in the FASP Elementary School. At FASP, students in grades 1-5 build on their Maternelle learning in order to become critical, independent thinkers who are ready to complete their education anywhere in the world.
This cannot happen without a good knowledge of language: the key tool for freedom of thought.
At the elementary level, language is at the heart of learning. Our dual-language program intensifies to help all students master both French and English during their elementary years, through a curriculum that meets the French governmental requirements and adheres to the New Jersey public schools standards-based system.
Because language mastery is key in the learning process, elementary school students entering after grade 1 are required to be proficient in either English or French.
A leader in bilingual education for 20 years, FASP challenges students to leave behind their comfort zones and ensures they’re well-prepared to travel, to think outside the box, and to make their unique mark on our global society.
