Open Houses

The best way to learn about our program is by visiting our campus. Prospective parents are highly encouraged to attend an Open House.

Lower School

Open Houses for the Lower School (Toute Petite Section, preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten through 5th grade) give prospective parents the opportunity to learn about our program, meet current parents, faculty and administrators, and tour the campus. A Q&A session is offered at the end of each event to address questions about immersion education, the curriculum, and various programs offered at the French American Lower School. Each event lasts two hours. Registration is encouraged, but not required.

Please email admissions@faispdx.org or call (503) 292-7776 x1310 to make arrangements.
