The New York French American Charter School is a growing community school with a global focus. As the only free, bi-lingual French Charter School in the U.S., they are also the only school to offer immersive French courses to children with special needs, as well as offering immersive support for non-French speakers, providing them with the opportunity to enroll in the school until grade five.
Founded in 2010, NYFACS is the first bilingual Franco-American public charter school in New York and the United States. This school began as an answer to the numerous needs of the francophone community in NYC, specifically in the western Harlem neighborhood where NYFACS is currently located. Even before entering the school, you will most likely hear French being spoken on the street.
