Bonjour! The French American School of Tampa Bay offers you the unique opportunity to give your child the lifelong Gift of Language in an authentic, French Immersion environment that is ideal for young children to become bilingual naturally. The language of instruction in all subjects – math, social studies, science etc. - is French, and students learn the same way they learned their native tongue, first listening and observing, and eventually speaking, reading and writing. Music, art and play are also integral to our mission to teach the whole child at this extraordinary time in their development.
We invite you to explore our website and set up a visit to our beautifully renovated school and playground - take a private tour, during which you can observe our approach at work in the classrooms, meet our teachers and ask plenty of questions. Our school is growing and we would love to have your family join us during this exciting time. We look forward to meeting you - Merci!
The French American School of Tampa Bay Reviews
Many of our students have no French background, so it takes a few months of listening and observing, experiencing everything in context, for them to figure out what was going on. Soon they understand what the teacher is saying, and eventually they begin to speak - in the authentic French accent that they are mimicking! It's incredible what the young mind is capable of - language acquisition, learning a musical instrument, developing artistic skill, it's all here for them during their school day!
Come for a tour and see the school in action. We have a wonderful community of caring parents who want to give their children the opportunity to become fully bilingual, confident and ready to blossom in the world!
