Our Educational Philosophy
At FSSA, our instruction is adapted to every student's needs, abilities and interests. Our teachers propose various age-appropriate activities to children, guide and engage them to learn and develop through exploration and play. Students learn hands-on, working and playing individually or in small groups. They are involved and active in the learning process.
Our Unique Curriculum
The FSSA curriculum adapts the French Ministry of Education's programs to the bicultural and bilingual context. We integrate the Texas Prekindergarten guidelines and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
In preschool, we focus on communication skills and abilities to experiment with various environments, techniques and tools. The preschool class promotes rich cognitive and linguistic stimulation for our 2- and 3-year old students.
In Pre-K, we prepare students for the next step, the Elementary School, while pursuing the preschool philosophy. Reading and writing skills and mathematics are introduced through various hands-on and concrete activities.
In Kindergarten, the skill level increases with the maturity of children. They start to read and write by themselves and discover more complex concepts by questioning, experimenting, researching and discussing them with their peers.
In Lower Elementary, students have 3 years to acquire knowledge and skills introduced. Our programs prompt questioning the world in all learning areas. Fluency in French and English languages is the priority.
