"This school is amazing; teachers are all native speakers, academic rigor is the norm, and it is a truly mind-expanding experience for children."
"Both my kids graduated from FAIS… They both have told me it was the best thing I could have done for them. Extremely well prepared for high school."FAIS Parent
"I truly feel that the educational experience I received at FAIS has had a greater impact on my future than my high school and college experiences combined. Merci beaucoup, FAIS"FAIS Alumnus
“FAIS has a strong IB program that teaches children from preschool on about the greater world around them.” FAIS Parent

On Wednesday, September 4th, retired Head of School Pam Dreisin and new Head of School Scott Hardister officially opened our new middle school building to welcome students for the 2019-20 school year!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for last Friday’s Back-to-School Picnic & Volunteer Fair (and a special thanks to the PLC’s Fun Committee and all of our volunteers who helped make it happen!).
After eager anticipation -- and parents telling us it has been THE subject of conversation at home every night -- students gave our new play structure an enthusiastic welcome yesterday!
