Welcome to the French Prep School of Austin!
Thanks to a rich experience of its educational governing body more than a decade in Austin, the French school of Austin welcomes all children from age 3 to 13 years old in a warm and small atmosphere, from the Petite Section (PS), ‘the small section of the kindergarten’ to the Middle School level.
Like all French schools abroad, French School of Austin caters for the French children residing in Austin, but also American children and children of other nationalities wishing to follow the ‘true’ French curriculum of the French Ministry of National Education.
This is how each and every student benefits from the French education, as well as from an international environment and opening towards others. We insure to the French children living in abroad all education-related public service tasks, following the rhythms, rules and programs of the French Ministry of National Education.
The school offers a ‘true’ French curriculum supplemented by the essential elements advanced in American private-school education. This dual approach produces academically adept, bilingual students, proficient in both English and French, who can easily matriculate into either the French or the American educational systems.
Besides the French speaking children, who represents this year more than a third of all our students, we warmly welcome American children and children from other countries as well, this is all due to the fact that their parents recognize the quality of our teaching methods and the atmosphere at school. We are very proud of this cultural and linguistic social mix (7 different nationalities) that contributes to the richness of our establishment.
We are pleased to be able to take advantage of new premises with relocation since 2012. The school now occupies a larger space and new classrooms with modern equipment.
We are happy that our numbers increase every year and our projects multiply! But let the website present you the pedagogical dynamism of our school.
I hope you enjoy browsing our new website!
