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 alternative for Preschool through 8th grade. 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. Please come and visit us to find out more. Our doors are open to welcome you.
