What's the key developmental advantage of dual-language education? It builds stronger, more complex, agile minds. The French-American School of Rhode Island (FASRI) is a unique educational experience for preschool through eighth grade. FASRI welcomes non French-speaking children from preschool up through the eight grade. Please come and visit us to find out more. Our doors are open to welcome you.
On Wednesday, June 10, FASRI faculty, former faculty, alumni, staff, parents and friends gathered to celebrate the graduating eighth-grade class of 2015. In keeping with FASRI tradition the event was a meaningful tribute not only to the achievements of our talented graduates, but a grateful acknowledgement of the ways that each student shaped the course of their own education and that of their peers.
Earlier this year, we caught up with Christopher Kniesche (’09) to hear all about his travels abroad in Nepal and Senegal. We spoke with him again recently to get his perspective after powerful earthquakes devastated the country of Nepal.
Since October, the CE2/third grade class of Céline Cyr has been closely following the progress of the 2015 Volvo Ocean Race. The highlight of the class project was a trip to Newport to see the boats during the only race stop over in North America.
FASRI students ranked among the highest scoring nationally this year in Le Grand Concours, a competition for French students of all levels, organized by the Association of American Teachers of French (AATF). The Grand Concours tests are developed annually as a motivational, extracurricular contest for students of French.
“I am so thankful for being educated in a multilingual environment, for this is what really separates FASRI from other schools. For the rest of my life, I know that being able to speak three different languages fluently will put me ahead of others.”
