North Seattle French School was founded to fulfill the need for a bilingual program in the North Seattle area. Our mission is to nurture and educate young minds to become capable independent thinkers and contribute as global citizens of the future. We offer a rigorous academic program that fosters social/emotional skills and critical thinking with extensive outdoor play and creativity in both French and English. The curriculum is based on the internationally-recognized program created by the French Ministry of Culture and incorporates the best of US styles of creative thinking and problem-solving. In addition to a full-time bilingual teacher and bilingual assistant and social worker, we have a part-time trilingual music and arts teacher. Our school will launch grade 2 in 2015/16 school year, with the goal to offer K-8 by adding subsequent grades each year. Located on Phinney Ridge, we use venues such as the Farmers market, local parks and the Woodland Park Zoo as an outdoor classroom and plan several field trips throughout the year. We encourage parent participation!
