“The French American School of Princeton is an impressive school. It gives the children the best of both the French and the American education. Our 2 boys – 9 and 11 years old – have been attending the school since their youngest age and are totally bilingual. Not only they are happy kids and absolutely love their school, but they also benefit from very high educational academic standards, learn strong human values and are self-confident. The educational community is exemplary, enhancing excellence, curiosity, creativity and respect. The kindergarten, elementary and middle schools are all exceptional. We highly trust this school and are so grateful to the way they prepare our children for their future.”
