One Student Body, Two Programs, Three Diplomas
FASNY is the only school in the New York metropolitan area to offer the French baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate (IB). All students also graduate with a New York State high school diploma.
FASNY's track record of 100% college acceptance and 100% baccalaureate success places us among the top French-American schools in North America, while our International Baccalaureate Program has been ranked among the best in the United States, according to Newsweek.
At FASNY we encourage our students to be active participants in their own education. Our methods of teaching and learning are based on a mutual respect and set of values that our students and teachers follow, with a growth mindset always in the forefront. Our goal is not based solely on excellent results and academic rigor, but on supporting our students to become well-rounded individuals set up for success outside of FASNY and beyond.
At the High School level, students have a large support system made up of dedicated teachers, heads of department, leaders of learning, administrators and support staff to help develop their full potential in the areas of student learning, student leadership and student emotional and social well-being. Our FASNY Mission and FASNY Fundamentals call on all of us to aid our students as they take risks, meet challenges, become open communicators, and learn empathy for others. It is our role to assist them as they celebrate their successes and face adversity throughout their four years of High School.
As part of their social, emotional growth, we help to prepare our oldest students for the real world by encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit through both their academics and extracurriculars. Students are motivated to explore a variety of interests and causes with student-led clubs, athletics, and community service. Expanding their minds and bodies outside of the classroom is an integral part of the FASNY High School experience.
