​FISW’s curriculum, taught by outstanding, certified teachers in a traditional and structured environment, combines the greatest strengths of both the French National Education and Washington State curricula. We believe that children who develop their intellect and character in a bilingual, bicultural environment learn respect and appreciation for cultural differences and are better prepared for their future in a multicultural workforce and global environment. Our rigorous bilingual program teaches students the skills and knowledge they need to become independent and flexible young adults in an ever-changing world.
