Dear Prospective Families, Students, and Visitors,
It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I extend a warm welcome to those exploring the French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) for the first time. As we will soon be approaching our remarkable 30th anniversary, I am excited to share the rich history and exciting developments that make FASPS an exceptional choice for bilingual education.
Founded in 1995, FASPS has been a pioneer in providing a unique bilingual learning experience that integrates the best of both the French and American educational systems. As we reflect on nearly three decades of educational excellence, we are thrilled to welcome you to our virtual doorstep and invite you to explore the vibrant world of FASPS.
Our commitment to fostering the next generation of global citizens is reflected in our harmonized bilingual program, where students not only achieve fluency in French and English but also gain a profound understanding of and appreciation for diverse cultures. We are proud to showcase our recent expansion, including the opening of a new campus in Factoria in January 2023 and the exciting "Seattle Permanent Home Project" set to open for grades 4 through 8 in 2026 in the North Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle.
At FASPS, we believe that bilingualism is not just an advantage but a norm in many countries, providing economic, cognitive, health, social, and cultural benefits. Our approach to bilingual education begins at an early age, with students as young as 18 months old welcomed into a nurturing and stimulating environment that sets the foundation for a lifetime of learning.
As we approach the celebration of our 30th anniversary and look toward the future, we invite you to be a part of our community and experience the transformative journey that FASPS offers. Our dedicated team of highly qualified teachers and instructors, drawn from a diverse, international pool of top talent, is committed to providing an enriching and supportive learning environment.
Thank you for considering the French American School of Puget Sound as a partner in your child's educational journey. We look forward to welcoming you into the FASPS community.
