Welcome to North Seattle French School! For the 2018-2019 school year, we are enrolling students from preschool through 5th grade.
1) Attend an Open House
We hold Open House events in November and January. After January, we are happy to work with your family to introduce you to NSFS. Please contact our office manager, Marie-Alice Chapeau, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Submit an Application
Once you have visited and/or attended an open house, please submit an application form with a non-refundable $80 application fee (via PayPal or a mailed personal check). Applications received after January 31 are welcome and are considered on a space-available basis.
3) Family School Visit
Once we receive your child’s application and application fee, we will contact you to schedule a Family Visit. During this visit, your child will spend a few hours in the appropriate classroom, while parents/guardians meet with a representative from our admissions team to learn more about our school environment and community.
North Seattle French School follows the French system to determine grade level according to date of birth. To start school, students must reach the following minimum age requirements by December 31 of the same year:
Preschool: 3 years old
Kindergarten: 5 years old
1st Grade: 6 years old
and so on for each subsequent grade.
For example, a child turning 5 in October 2018 is eligible to start kindergarten in September 2018.
Yes. Siblings of current students receive a 5% tuition discount and have admissions priority. Siblings are not automatically accepted; all applicants must complete the full admissions process.
Generally, it’s a good idea to start looking at schools in the fall for the following school year. Our application deadline is January 31. However, we can sometimes accept students mid-year.
It is the policy of North Seattle French School to admit students without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual preference, age, or disability.
