9th and 10th Grades: French-American curriculum


International Curriculum

FASNY offers two programs in 9th and 10th Grades: The International Program taught in English, leading in 11th and 12th Grades to the International Baccalaureate, and the French-American Program, taught in French or bilingually, leading in 11th and 12th Grades either to the International Baccalaureate, or to the French Baccalaureate (taught in French or bilingually).


11th and 12th Grades:

Choice between two diploma tracks

Students who have followed the bilingual curriculum in Grades 9&10 will choose between the French Baccalaureate track, taught in French or bilingually (OIB), and the International Baccalaureate track, taught in English or bilingually. Both programs are rigorous pre-university courses of study which meet the needs of highly motivated High School students. Students in both tracks are also prepared for the SATs and ACTs, and all graduate with a High School diploma.

Students who will have followed the International track in Grades 9&10 (opening in September 2018) will be prepared for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program track in grades 11&12.

Boualem Maizia, Head of High School

In my role as Head of High School, I work collaboratively with an expert team of teachers, advisors, coaches and administrators. From the High School Dean and College Counselors, to the School Counselor and Community Service Coordinator, to the Athletic Director, Student Government Advisor and Clubs Advisor, students receive much individualized and small group attention. Faculty members establish and maintain close relationships with students and work with them to build self-confidence and ensure success. Varied teaching styles offer students the opportunity to learn in different ways. Welcoming collaborative dialogue with parents along the way, we all work with a diverse, multicultural student body to cultivate a learning environment that combines rigor, creativity, respect, tolerance, multiple-perspectives and character development.
