School Notes

  • Since our founding nearly 60 years ago, our community has prepared students to navigate the world with confidence and command, empathy and joy. We achieve this through rigorous bilingual, French, and International Baccalaureate education programs, and a vibrant school culture strengthened by multilingual, multinational educators and families.
  • Our community includes French American International School (Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8) and International High School (Grade 9 through Grade 12).
  • At French American, our students experience a unique, bilingual environment. By Grade 8, our students are fluent in both French and English.
  • In Grade 9, our community expands to include incoming students from across San Francisco and families from around the globe. Many of these students are not bilingual, yet they all have a desire to experience the world around them.
  • At International High School, students earn an internationally recognized baccalaureate diploma in addition to a U.S. high school degree. We prepare our students to go on to thrive at the best universities, anywhere in the world.
