The admissions season has officially passed, but FAIS still has space available in some of our preschool-kindergarten classes for this coming fall. Our Lower School accepts students from age 2-1/2 up to age 6, which is the optimal time to begin learning a second language. Contact the Office of Admissions to learn more today!
FAIS "paved the path to play" thanks to the 140+ families who supported the Gala's Special Appeal or celebrated their FAIS experience by purchasing a paver!
Play is an essential component of healthy child development, and your contributions help the School achieve a new vision for a playground that empowers all types play. Mark your calendar for the "Grand Re-Opening" on September 6th!
If you missed out on purchasing your paver but wish to support the exceptional teaching and learning that occurs at FAIS, consider a gift today.
