Active pedagogy guided by the Gardner Multiple Intelligence Theory, fostering intrinsic motivation, self-direction, and the ability to learn how to learn.

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.
