School Summary
:
National, IB, US curricula.
900 students, 4-19 yrs.

Ecole Bilingue, The French-American International School of Boston, was founded in 1962, for English and French speaking families who sought a combined French and American educational program for their children. Currently it serves 461 day students on two campuses. The school is accredited by the French Ministry of Education and CIS and is a member of NEASC and CIS/ECIS.

The Ecole Bilingue, The French-American International School of Boston day is structured to integrate the official French Ministry of Education program and an American independent school program. Specialists' programs are presented in either language. In small classes students participate in a dynamic learning environment which enables them to develop both solid conceptual understanding and strong implementation skills. Members of the faculty have excellent academic credentials in their selected areas of teaching.

In the Maternelle division, which includes pre-school and kindergarten, the French immersion program follows the official French pre-school curriculum. Students have an hour of English instruction each day in Pre-Kindergarten and Mid-Kindergarten, up to eight hours a week in Kindergarten depending on the native language, with a full morning of English once a week.

Grades 1 and 2 at Ecole Bilingue, The French-American International School of Boston provide a transition from a primarily French Maternelle program to grades 3, 4 and 5 where equal weight is given to the French and English language programs. In Grades 1 and 2 science is team taught by both the French and English language teachers while in 3, 4 and 5 science is taught in English. In all grades 1-5 math is taught in French but is supplemented in the English program. Students also participate in art, music, physical education and, starting in grade 3, technology classes. ESL and FSL classes are available to students if needed.

The Middle and Upper School program at Ecole Bilingue, The French-American International School of Boston prepares students for academically challenging colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. In ninth grade, students take the French examination called Brevet des Collèges. In eleventh and twelfth grades, they prepare and take the French Baccalaureate which is highly recognized by universities and colleges worldwide. All three sections of the French Baccalaureate are offered (ES, L, S). A choice between German and Spanish as a third language is introduced in sixth grade and Latin is introduced in seventh grade.
