What Guides Our Work and Shapes Our Students’ Educational Experience:
Excellence | Integrity | Cultural Agility | Community
Excellence | Intégrité | Agilité Culturelle | Communauté
  • Excellence: We have high expectations of our students, teachers, and staff, and each individual thrives in an environment of self-exploration to find their best selves in school, at home, and in life.
  • Integrity: FASPS employees are chosen for their focus on doing what is right. Whether it is educating and caring for our students, managing our finances, developing school curricula, planning fundraising events, or running the after-school program, we always operate with the highest regard for our community and our international network.
  • Cultural Agility: We believe that “beyond the classroom” experiences such as special guest visits, performances, presentations, exhibits, field trips, local outings, and national / international trips are essential to create open minded, successful students who are prepared for life after FASPS.
  • Community: Our dedication to our community drives our actions. We prioritize a diverse, inclusive, and inviting community and work hard to create an environment where individuals look forward to walking through our front doors every day.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At the French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS), we prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion. We commit to creating and nurturing a culture that seeks diverse representation, respects and celebrates individual and group differences, and strives to address inequities in our community and beyond.
DIVERSITY results from the unique blend of what makes us singular as student, parent and employee. It means respect for the values shaped in part by each individual’s background, race, color, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, nation of origin, language, socio-economic status, and any other differentiating factors.
EQUITY is the process to provide the broadest possible set of opportunities for each individual’s needs and ensure that students, parents, and employees thrive. Equity is the process; equality is the sought-after outcome.
INCLUSION is the intentional creation and nurturing of a school environment in which the engagement of each student, parent and employee is valued and sought.
