The French-American School of Rhode Island (FASRI) is a unique educational alternative for Preschool through 8th grade, expanding young minds at twice the speed of language. Our French immersion program runs from Pre-school through Kindergarten, and the dual language French and American program from grades 1 through 8. FASRI welcomes non-French speaking children up to and including Kindergarten.
What's the key developmental advantage of dual language schooling? Dual language schooling tends to build stronger, more complex, more agile brains, neuroscientists say.
FASRI is fully accredited, not only by the state but by the French government, which regularly judges our performance.
Please come and visit us to find out more. Our doors are open to welcome you.
“For any parent looking for a unique bilingual education, FASRI delivers.”
Middle School Science Teacher, Ryan Cook discovered an exciting new teaching technique while searching a more effective way to develop his lesson plans. “I was putting a lot of time into planning experiments for class and I was looking for news ways to engage students,” he recalls. So, drawing on his own laboratory and field research experience, he reasoned, “Why not let them do it for themselves?”
We would like to congratulate FASRI alumna Olivia Hewitt ('11), now a Junior at St. Mary Academy-Bay View, who has been nominated to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Washington, DC on February 14-16, 2014.
