It is with excited anticipation that we announce the introduction of a middle school program for The French American School of Silicon Valley. FASSV has long entertained the idea of finding a location to be able to grow the school for our students and provide them with continuity in the French language and instruction beyond fifth grade.
In order to accomplish this expansion, we are delighted to announce FASSV has entered into an agreement for an additional six classrooms at Cupertino Union School District’s Luther Campus (220 Blake Avenue, Santa Clara). This location is less than 5 miles east of our current site at Serra Park and will serve as the launch site for FASSV’s middle school program.
The goal of this expansion would be for FASSV to open its doors for a 6th grade class in the fall of 2022. With each successive year, an additional grade will be added to the program, culminating with 8th grade.
Recognizing that middle school students have separate educational needs, the school’s vision is to provide each campus with the differentiated learning styles which best match their grades, while also maintaining a synergy across both locations. The Luther site offers a large grass field for sports activities, a generous blacktop area with basketball courts and open space, and a covered courtyard for possible meetings for students and events. The middle school will offer the same high-quality education and academic rigor you have come to expect from the FASSV elementary school program.
The French American School of Silicon Valley is looking toward the future with excitement and expectation for our students.
