Where French immersion meets academic excellence!

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 given 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 the Texas Education Agency, while 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.

La Saint-Nicolas

The holiday season is approaching, and so are the cards! The first in this beautiful series is the Saint Nicholas card. After writing their letters to Saint Nicholas, the Cycle 3 students celebrated Saint Nicholas Day joyfully. They received treats, including the famous Saint Nicholas brioche.

I chose French School of Austin to give my girls the gift of a second language. I was not expecting how quickly they would begin understanding, singing, and speaking with no previous French exposure! Language immersion aside, the academics at French School of Austin are top notch. The small classes and individualized attention help each student to reach (and exceed!) his or her academic potential. Less than two months into the school year, my kindergartener is already reading in two languages, writing in print and cursive, and playing the cello! My daughters are flourishing at French School of Austin – I wouldn’t have them at any other school.
