Founded in 2010, NYFACS is the first bilingual Franco-American public charter school in New York and the United States.

  • Bonjour,
    I am a prospective French teacher currently enrolled in an a Pre-Service Program at Rutgers University and am working towards obtaining a Teaching Certificate.  One of my course requirements is to observe a French classroom in a middle or high school for a 4 hour period.   I would love the opportunity to observe a French classroom at your school. Could you could grant me this opportunity?
    If needed, I can certainly provide a letter from Rutgers University explaining in further detail. 
    This requirement must be complete by February 29th, so I thank you in advance for your prompt response.
