"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
"Great engaged school. I went here, and they really care about all the students. They encourage engaged learning and multilingual learners."Dominic H., FAIS Alumnus
This FAIS tradition featured music all day, all over campus from students, parents, staff, and guest bands!
This year over 7,000 volunteer hours have been logged... and we know that doesn’t cover all the time that our amazing parents have put into the various initiatives around campus (if you haven't logged your hours, please do so here).
