What's the key developmental advantage of dual-language education? It builds stronger, more complex, agile minds. The French-American School of Rhode Island (FASRI) is a unique educational experience for preschool through eighth grade. FASRI welcomes non French-speaking children from preschool up through the eight grade. Please come and visit us to find out more. Our doors are open to welcome you.
On Friday September 25, the French American School hosted a literary discussion with visiting Congolese writer, Fiston Mwanza Mujila, author of Tram 83. The event was well-attended by college students, parents, alumni families, teachers, members of the local Congolese community and friends of the school.
What ways does the acquisition of a second or third language impact a student’s life? Cybele Greenberg, an early graduate of the French American School and now a senior at Harvard University, has had ample opportunity to consider dual-language education and the ways bilingualism has shaped her goals and her interests.

Perhaps the most obvious change in the school for most visitors this year was our vibrant new color palette on the first floor, but there were many other improvements made during the course of the summer that will have an impact on the academic life of our students. The library was relocated from the second floor to the lower level near the Middle School over the summer and we got a virtual tour from librarian Julia Johnston about the project and the impact it will have on the program.
The French-American School is proud to host a visit from Congolese author, Fiston Mwanza Mujila on Friday September 25 at 5:30pm in the school auditorium, 75 John Street, Providence.
“As a multi-lingual family, having a school that offers an integrated second language is important. We believe that it will give our child an advantage in the future.”
