French Immersion School of Washington

An excellent bilingual education

FISW provides an excellent bilingual education in a welcoming environment

that encourages critical thinking and curiosity.

We believe that children who develop their intellect and character in a bilingual, bi-cultural environment learn respect and appreciation for cultural differences and are better prepared for their future in a multicultural workforce and global environment.

The ability to understand concepts, ask questions, problem-solve, write, play and make friends in two languages is an advantage that will last a lifetime.

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.

At FISW, we value our vibrant and diverse community. As connections are formed among students, teachers, parents and staff, lifelong friendships are made. You will find that our entire community embraces our mission, creating a truly welcoming environment.

Enrolled families can find a more complete calendar of internal events on Parents Web.

Register Now for FISW Summer Camp

This year, FISW invites campers ages 3-10 to become explorers and enjoy a different exploration-focused theme each week. Your child will experience fun activities including cooking, games, music and songs, building, stories, arts and crafts. Every sunny day will include lots of outside play. Children age 5 and older will participate in a theme-related field trip or guest presentation every week. Our bilingual staff will conduct the camp in French, but French language experience is not required.
