|Qualities and characteristics best defining the school||
Our community includes French American International School (Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8) and International High School (Grade 9 through Grade 12).
At French American, students experience a unique, bilingual environment. By Grade 8, students are fluent in both French and English. In Grade 9, our community expands to include incoming students from across San Francisco and families from around the globe. Many of these students are not bilingual, yet they all have a desire to experience the world around them.
At International High School, students earn an internationally recognized baccalaureate diploma in addition to a U.S. high school degree.

Guided by the principles of academic rigor and diversity, the French American International School and International High School offers programs of study in French and English to prepare its graduates for a world in which the ability to think critically and to communicate across cultures is of paramount importance.
