French Curriculum

At the French American School of Denver, our curriculum combines the academic traditions of France and the United States.

 

FASDenver's curriculum creates a stimulating bilingual learning environment that focuses on student learning and well-being and supports the intellectual development of each student.

 

Our educational programming aligns with French educational standards while also meeting Colorado State Standards.

OUR IMMERSION APPROACH

FASDenver utilizes a two-way immersion (TWI) model, a specific type of dual-language education that allows students to learn a second language while continuing to develop their first language. While TWI programs vary in implementation, fidelity to the model includes the following characteristics: instruction in two languages, one language at a time, and peer-to-peer facilitated language sharing.
