School Leadership

Letter from the Head of School

Welcome to the French-American School of New York’s website. If this is your first visit, I invite you to take a virtual tour of our school to learn about the extraordinary opportunities it offers students, both in and outside the classroom.
Founded in 1980 as a 17-student preschool, FASNY has evolved to become a premier bilingual and international N-12 day school with global reach. Our dedicated staff of teachers and administrators is committed to creating an environment that is nurturing yet challenging, one that encourages students to flourish intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.

We have a diverse parent body—our families represent more than 50 nationalities—as well as an active parent-teacher association that provides myriad opportunities to get involved in the life of the school. In addition, our proximity to New York City allows us to take advantage of the rich cultural and recreational offerings of one of the world’s great urban centers.
Consider scheduling a visit to our school! You will experience first-hand our vibrant community and gain a better appreciation of the value of a FASNY education.

Francis Gianni
