French American International School and International High School Reviews

85 reviews
All Categories
International High School (IHS) is a wonderful school that prepares students for university through the rigorous International Baccalaureate/French Baccalaureate curriculum. The teachers and faculty are very supportive and always try to help the students in any way they can. Although some of the facilities are not state of the art, the school makes it up with their challenging yet rewarding curriculum. Additionally, the college counselors at the school really help students find the right schools that fit for them and they are also very helpful throughout the college application process in general. In addition to that, International High School has an amazing global travel program where students can choose to go to places such as Burma, China/Tibet, Galapagos, etc. International High School of San Francisco is the perfect school for any student who is wants to push themselves academically, has a passion for theatre or sports, and have a strong desire to travel.

Regardless of the course you take (IB or BAC), the school is academically excellent. They offer a large range of courses that would be hard to find elsewhere (like Arabic, global politics, economics, and many others). Socially, there is a unique experience of the French aspect, thus the school attracts a large amount of European (and sometimes other) immigrants as well as the children of immigrants. Because of this ethnically and culturally it is very diverse however racially it can be a little bit less (although still very good as compared to several other Bay Area private school). In terms of social dynamics, as a newcomer in freshman, I always felt welcome and the community is very kind and welcoming. However, the main fault of the school is the facility; it is very small we struggle to find space for classes/people/sports/anything. This being said, recently plans were revealed to build a new building for High School, which would effectively solve most of these issues.
If you are an artist or an avid sports player, this school is perfect. It is full of creative energy wherever you go. The academics are extremely rigorous, whether you take the IB, or the BAC. You must know this is not like any other school. But, you learn to think beyond the box (very cliché but it's true), and to apply your knowledge to something you have no idea about. In other words, it is not about memorization, but about critical thinking. Plus, Hayes Valley has suchhhhhh good food!
