My son just finished the first year at the French American School and we can't say enough wonderful things about the caring staff and his absolutely fabulous teacher, Daniel!! My son entered school in August at three years old and did not speak a word of french. Ten months later, he is fluent! And neither my husband or I speak more than a few words in French. Through out the school year, the class went on several interesting field trips including the zoo, Pinecrest Gardens, a clay studio and a tour of Publix! My son thrived in this school and absolutely adores his teacher and the new friends he has made. :-)))

The French American School of Miami is a wonderful tihjtknit school. The warm and acring environment fosters learning. The classes are small and the school feel like a family. Both my sons started without knowing a word of French and are both now fluent although we don't speak French at home. It really is one of the best kept secrets in Miami. I can't recommend it highly enough.

The French American School of Miami is by far the best option if you want your kids to be educated as if they lived in France. They will become open minded, well rounded, and incredibly fluent in French. In 4th and 5th grade, they go through stuff American school only address during high school. My two kids (16 and 18) are what they thanks to Lena and her school.

This school is absolutely wonderful. The teachers are European and administration really holds true to the French way. If you'd like your children to speak fluent French and be taught to view the world comment un francais, I can't recommend this place enough. Our son was treated very well by loving teachers and the only reason we had to leave was because we moved.

best kept secret in this school. My daughter has been attending for two years and it is amazing, expensive but worth it.

I had my children in this school for 8 years and cannot say enough about the experience. Intellectually, physically and in the arts, this school was wonderful. Culturally it is rich and diverse. The school is small and feels like a family. My kids went on to attend Ransom Everglades and they were well prepared and spoke French fluently, even though we do not speak any French at home. If you are interested in a school that provides it all, the French American School is for you.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
