what is the french international school fis
What is the French International School(FIS)?
  • It is a private independent American school, not a French public school.
  • It is a 501-c-3 Not-For-Profit Foundation governed by its Board of Trustees and operating within US and Maryland laws, rules and “good practice” guidelines like other independent schools in the area.
  • Its Mission as defined by the Board is :
      • To offer to students in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area an educational curriculum reflecting standards and guidelines in effect in France, as defined by the French educational authorities, in order to prepare students for the French baccalaureate examination and for admission to institutions of higher education in France and in other French-speaking countries
      • Furthermore, to qualify students for admission to colleges and universities in the United States by offering a curriculum including courses focusing on the English language, American history and civilization; and
      • To promote the diffusion of French language and culture in the context of American society in a manner that reflects the cultural diversity of the school.
  • It is one of two “Lycées Conventionnés” in the US - the other schools are “Homologués”

    • The Lycée follows some French educational system regulations and policies.
    • The Lycée offers a French educational curriculum conforming to standards and guidelines in effect in France (BO) and prepares the students for the French baccalaureat examination
  • Other Schools are “Homologués” :
    • • Administrators not named and paid by the AEFE* but rather by the board
    • • The School can receive a contribution towards instructional projects
    • • The School offers a French educational curriculum conforming to standards and guidelines in effect in France (BO) and prepares the students for the French baccalaureat examination

the role of the board of trustees
The role of the Board of Trustees
  • As an American independent school, the FIS is governed by a Board of Trustees (16 voting trustees and 4 non-voting members).
  • The Board:
    • is the school’s governing body that is legally responsible for the all activities and assures compliance with applicable US and Maryland laws and regulations.
    • works to ensure the future solvency and sustainability of the Mission of the school.
    • is the employer of all non-expatriate personnel while choosing to follow certain French educational system regulations as a “Lycée Conventionné”
    • meets once a month throughout the academic year and works through six defined committees on a regular basis (non-trustees can be part of select committees)
  • The Trustees:
    • shall be responsible for all decisions regarding the activities of the Corporation.
    • are fully volunteer board members; they do not gain monetarily from any aspect of the board’s activity.
  • As of September 2007, the Chief Administrative Officer attends and reports at all board meetings.

Advancement – Give for Growth

An independent school’s financial health depends on a strong partnership between the school administration, the Board of Trustees, families and alumni.

Our Goal is to maintain the extraordinary academic and learning environment that Lycée Rochambeau has provided for more than 50 years while keeping the tuition fees reasonable. The Annual Fund was established to raise the additional needed fundsfor greater annual operating support.
