Rochambeau-the French Intl School
Rochambeau, The French International School offers a bicultural and bilingual education to internationally-minded students starting from age 2 through 12th grade.
Our academic program is based on the French National Curriculum, a comprehensive world recognized educational program, with a strong English component.
A French Immersion program is offered in Lower school (Pre-K to 3rd grade) for children from non-francophone families who want their children to become fully bilingual or multilingual.
With both a US diploma and a French Baccalaureat (or OIB, the bilingual option of the French Baccalureat), Rochambeau graduates can choose to continue their education in the US, Canada, the UK, France or anywhere in the world. Over 60% of our students pursue higher education outside of France.
