THE LEADER IN HARMONIZED BILINGUAL EDUCATION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
The French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) inspires the next generation of global citizens to learn, understand, and act wisely in a multicultural world. Students achieve bilingual fluency in a rigorous academic program that combines the best philosophies of both the French and American educational systems. We teach students to view the world from a multicultural perspective, to participate actively in a diverse community that celebrates differences, and to rise to the challenges of a singular academic program accredited by both the French Ministry of National Education and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS).
Language acquisition is at the heart of our harmonized bilingual program, but we are not a language school. All of the subjects we teach are taught in French and/or in English, with Spanish and Mandarin introduced in sixth grade. Bilingual individuals are at a distinct advantage in the world, so much so that being bilingual is considered the norm in many countries. Bilingualism affords the bilingual individual economic, cognitive, health, social, and cultural benefits.
