Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The administration supported the teacher who bullied my daughter for over 6 months. The same teacher allowed a child to beat my daughter in the head with a ruler in the classroom. Her excuse was that she did not see the incident and the administration accepted it. Luckily , when I spoke with the mother of the child who hit my daughter in the head, the mother was mortified and had the child write a letter of apology. Otherwise the teacher would have maintained that it never happened.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The leadership is poor. The head of all the campuses is reported to not even have a university degree. While in France, it is not a requirement that teachers have a degree, he is not a trained teacher. The lack of formal education and / or educational training shows in the policies and hires. The teachers do whatever they please and have no respect for the leadership.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
My daughter started at FASNY as a bright confident child. As a result of the ongoing bullying from a FASNY teacher and the betrayal by the FASNY administration my husband and I now have to work to rebuild her self-esteem,

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
The French teachers are mostly fine. The English teachers are largely unqualified. The English curriculum is very behind compared to the local schools.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Instead of covering topics in class they give excessive homework.




- a
My daughter was harassed by a teacher for over 6 months. Despite our repeated complaints, the administration did nothing to stop the teacher from harassing our daughter. The French teachers a mostly fine but most of the English teachers are unqualified and have been hired through nepotism. The administration seemed more concerned with protecting their teachers than the children in their charge. My daughter who had previously loved school started hating going to school. Bullying by another student is bad enough, bullying by a teacher is horrible, an administration that allows bullying to the point of abetting is inexcusable. The bullying our daughter endured happened at the Larchmont Campus. I notice that the Scarsdale campus is listed separately- My daughter did have a wonderful time at the Scarsdale campus. The head of school at that campus is very professional and the teachers were very dedicated. The Larchmont campus on the other hand is run by an unqualified head who cannot or chooses not to hold his teachers to normal standards of educational decency.
