Being a parent at the French American Academy

Parents are a cornerstone to our school development. With more than 40 nationalities involved in the school, they represent a vibrant community of international individuals. The French American Academy provides tons of opportunities to meet, get involved with the community. For example you can share knowledge and experiences, and welcome new families. All these activities contribute to foster engagement and a sense of belonging around school values.

Parents are the essential link between school and students. As a parent, you know how your child feels. For example, you know if he feels grumpy or if he is happy to go to school. As a result, you can help us better understand him or her. Moreover, you can also relay and amplify school messages. Finally, you can ensure homework is duly done.

Being a parent is not an easy ride! Of course, much of it is joy and victories to share. But there are also challenges, doubts, lack of time and many other things that can make you feel overwhelmed.
