    The FAA is an amazing school. Our two kids have been attending since kindergarten, now at 2nd and 3rd grade, and what an incredible experience it has been! Both of them are really fluent in French even though no one else at home speaks French. The school is very diverse and fun, our kids are becoming quite the citizens of the world and are really engaged in all the things they learn at school. The teaching staff is superb, professional, capable, and friendly.
    It is worth mentioning that the school have delivered well above our expectations in virtualizing the school program to support the COVID-19 environment by: Anticipating the situation, preparing virtual classrooms for every grade, and training the staff, students and parents all within the 1st week of lockdown. Today almost at the end of the school year my kids remain fully engaged and continue to cover both their English and French programs with minimal disruption.

    Our son has been attending the FAA for the past two years and what a journey. We have witnessed how he blossomed. As parents from two different countries we value diversity and learning about different cultures and have been blessed by finding this at the FAA. One thing we absolutely love, on top of the academic excellence is the fact that the school is teaching since pk2 the social and emotional skills they need to deal with everyday situation. A caring, nurturing and academically challenging school with the feeling of being one big family. Thank you FAA !
    Our daughter started at the FAA New Milford in PreK classes. She has enjoyed the last 5 years in a very safe and sustainable environment, with dedicated teachers and a fantastic bi lingual curriculum. We love the FAA and we thank all the staff and teachers for their dedication specially the past 3 months. Thank you.
