The French-American School of Rhode Island (FASRI) is a unique educational alternative for Preschool through 8th grade, expanding young minds at twice the speed of language. Our French immersion program runs from Pre-school through Kindergarten, and the dual language French and American program from grades 1 through 8. FASRI welcomes non-French speaking children up to and including Kindergarten.
What's the key developmental advantage of dual language schooling? Dual language schooling tends to build stronger, more complex, more agile brains, neuroscientists say.
FASRI is fully accredited, not only by the state but by the French government, which regularly judges our performance.
Please come and visit us to find out more. Our doors are open to welcome you.
