Preparing children for the complex, multicultural world of tomorrow is our top priority. Being educated in a bilingual environment provides every student with a unique perspective — of the many communities that surround us and for the complex, nuanced, multicultural community around the world.
Closer to home, our NYFACS school culture is fun! We host a Spring Festival, a Multicultural Day, a Science Fair, Zoom dance parties, robotics, and Teacher Appreciation Week. Our afterschool offerings include STEM Programming, homework help, and Street Squash.
We participate in global art festivals, Africa Day Parade, Black History Month and have an active gardening committee. Our students get hands-on learning via field trips to special places like The Bronx Zoo, The Whitney Museum, The United Nations, and even Washington DC. Our fifth graders graduate at the French Embassy and our kinders graduate on our roof deck.
Visual arts, violin and piano lessons, yoga and teaching artists have all graced our classrooms during and after our school days together. Our second graders enjoy a swim program and our fourth graders have a penpal club. Our third to eighth graders have laptops with instructional programs DuoLingo, Rosetta Stone and iXL for Math. Our classrooms all have smart boards and our teachers are all fluent and able to teach in both English and French.
French Cinema Week is a must attend for our community calendar each year. When able to happen, we participate in special invites, film screenings and exciting incentives.
The NYFACS PTO is heavily involved in the life and success of the school, providing a voice for parents to the administration and to the Board of Trustees, and making our many fun events and festivals come alive for our PK-8 students. Join NYFACS and watch your child bloom into a citizen of the world!
Since 2010 we have educated hundreds of dual language PK-8 students in our tuition-free French immersion school. We absorb and support all levels of French & English language learners in our highly sought after bilingual and immersion school environment. We unlock a lifelong appreciation for our multicultural world as we teach in French and English. Find out more and help your child feel the world!
