A dual-language immersion program based on the French Ministry of Education curriculum

French School of Austin – or Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau – is a private, independent bilingual school for students from preschool to Grade 8.

Located in North Austin, French School of Austin has provided our students a bilingual preparatory education since 2005. The school offers a multicultural, multi-language learning environment where instruction is given in French and English, with an optional third language track in Arabic, Spanish, or Mandarin.

The school curricula are based on the guidelines of the French Ministry of Education, and supplemented by the essential elements advanced in American private-school education. By the end of middle school, this dual approach produces academically-adept, bilingual students, proficient in both English and French and a third language.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

“We appreciate the small class sizes, one-on-one attention she receives, languages and cultural diversity exposure, and we see benefits of students across a range of ages being given opportunity to knowledge share and in a loosely structured way provide mentorship for each other.”
