Welcome from the Admissions Team
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the French Immersion School of Washington. We look forward to working with your family as you navigate this exciting time in your child's educational journey.
As you explore our school as a potential match for your child and your family, the admissions team is here to guide you and answer any questions you may have. Our preschool and elementary programs provide opportunities for students learn through two languages and acquire the different thought processes unique to each language. As a result, they develop different ways to think, to process concepts, and to approach problems. FISW students also grow up within the context of our international community and develop a deep understanding and respect for other cultures. Their bilingual and bicultural experiences make them naturally open to new perspectives and ideas.
The best way to learn more about our school is to visit and experience learning in action. We invite you to tour our lively campus where you can tour the facilities, peek inside the classroom at all grade levels, and learn more about our program. You might also be interested in attending an open house or admissions coffee where you can gain an inside look at our bilingual program and get to know current parents, teachers, and administration.
When you feel like you know us well, apply online. We will then invite you in for a family interview and classroom visit where your family can experience our program firsthand and determine if it is the right fit for your family.
