From French American School of Puget Sound

The French American School of Puget Sound (FASPS) stands out in the Pacific Northwest for its bilingual program, blending French and American educational values to cultivate global citizens. Accredited by French and American institutions, we promote bilingual fluency across subjects, extending to Spanish and Mandarin in sixth grade. It highlights the benefits of bilingualism, from cognitive gains to cultural awareness, starting education at 18 months to leverage early cognitive development. We emphasize the extensive benefits of bilingualism, including cognitive, economic, social, and cultural advantages. Beginning education from as young as 18 months, FASPS leverages early language exposure to enhance cognitive development and academic success. Our outstanding faculty is a dedicated group of internationally recruited, highly qualified educators, which ensures a rich and diverse learning environment supported by continuous professional development.

Benefits Of A Bilingual Education

academic spotlight

Bilingualism opens many cognitive and cultural pathways for young students. These benefits rest at the heart of what we accomplish at FASPS. In the past 50 years, neuroscientists and psychologists have uncovered a wealth of scientific evidence to support the hypothesis that learning another language at a young age strengthens cognitive and linguistic development in children.
