Head of School Welcome

Welcome! Bienvenue!

Since 1992, the French American School of Silicon Valley has been providing a dual-immersion program within a nurturing environment.

The school’s rigorous academic program is accredited by both the Ministère Français de l’Education Nationale, and the California Association of Independent Schools.

Our school is fortunate to have an outstanding team of American and French teachers who work hand-in-hand, and whose expertise gives every child the opportunity to benefit from a challenging and differentiated curriculum. Additionally, we are very proud of our community-oriented environment.

Daily, I have the pleasure of greeting the smiling faces of students who are delighted to come to school and to share their knowledge and talents with their classmates.  The French American School of Silicon Valley is a place where children feel good and thrive both on an academic and personal level.

Please come and visit our school. We offer annual Open Houses and weekly individualized tours where you will be given the opportunity to experience our bilingual program in action.

See you soon!  A bientôt!
