Dear Friends and Families –

Thank you for your interest in the French American School of North Carolina.

The French School of Raleigh was created to offer a bilingual educational program for the children in North Carolina. We are the only French and English bilingual pre-kindergarden and elementary school in the State, and our school is rapidly growing. 

We opened our elementary school in 2021 and are now in the process of applying for Accreditation through the French Ministry of Education and AEFE (French Agency for the Advancement of French Abroad) to join an elite list of schools around the world proud to teach your children about French language, French Culture and provide them with an elite education in the North Carolina area.

We also began planning the expansion of our L’Ecole to transition to a Lycee! So much activity, and it all will greatly benefit our children and community.

If you are not currently enrolled, we would enjoy the opportunity to meet you and your family in person! If you would like to tour our school and learn more about our program while classes are in session, please email us as l.ecole.fsr@gmail.com and we’ll schedule a visit.

Warm regards,

Marie-Claire Ribeill

Founder and Executive Director, Emeritus


Dear Students, Parents and Prospective Families –

It is my great pleasure to serve as L’Ecole’s Executive Director and to be a part of each of our students’ lives as we strive to fully prepare them to succeed in a multicultural world.

One of our most cherished assets is our dedicated and talented teachers and staff, who work side-by-side with our involved parent community. Our PTA is outstanding! Whether you are a parent or are hired to join our team, you and your family become part of ours.

Our community is extremely diverse which leads to expanded perspectives and an overall enhanced educational experience.

We have high expectations for our students, and this rigor and dedication leads to motivated and knowledgeable individuals who excel in life after they pass through our doors. Our program and curriculum are designed to lay an educational foundation based on excellence, integrity, culture, and community.  In the end, we provide our students with the tools and experiences to make the most of their future pursuits.

As Marie-Claire stated, if you are not currently enrolled, we would enjoy the opportunity to meet you and your family in person! If you would like to tour our school and learn more about our program while classes are in session, please email us as l.ecole.fsr@gmail.com and we’ll schedule a visit.
