Member School & 51st Conference Host School Spotlight: French American International School / International High School of San Francisco


The French American International School and International High School is a world-class lower, middle and high school located in the heart of San Francisco. This PreK-12 independent, coeducational institution of 1,100 students provides multilingual, international education to globally minded students. Students begin speaking French in Kindergarten, become bilingual as they complete lower school, and go on to study a third language in 6th grade. High school students follow honors-level French Bac or International Baccalaureate diploma programs; and travel the world studying in such places as Tahiti, Italy, Peru, China, Morocco, and India. In addition to international academic programs, the school offers its students competitive athletics and spectacular visual and performing arts.

It takes a unique type of person, whether student or parent, teacher or administrator, to join our community: bold but not brash, caring but not doting, reflective yet active. We hold dear the values of respect, integrity, inclusion, collaboration and curiosity. We strive to think critically and creatively, to build resilience, and to communicate across cultures. All are essential tools in today's world—ones that we have been cultivating for over 50 years.
