Welcome to LFSF

Why choose LFSF?

We believe there are many reasons to make the LFSF choice.

The Lycée Français de San Francisco (LFSF) is an independent school, and the leading French immersion school in the SF Bay Area.

At LFSF, our objective is to inspire future generations to make positive and impactful contributions to our world through a multilingual and multicultural education that lasts a lifetime.

We provide a unique educational program accredited by the French Ministry of Education that helps our 1,000+ preschool through 12th grade students build confidence and adaptability in their ever-changing world.

With their French and US diplomas, our graduates carry the excellence of the education they received and the spirit of openness, curiosity and integrity shaped at LFSF.

The accreditation, an added value

Our unique educational program is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, which guarantees the quality and rigor of its French component.

Our English program also is very challenging and allows students to graduate with a US High School diploma as well as a French Baccalaureat.

long lasting results

Our graduates are accepted to prestigious universities throughout the world. As students of independent schools they have a great likelihood of completing their bachelor’s degrees and graduate degrees.

Is LFSF the right choice for our family?

We chose a French school for our daughter – and we’re not French!

When LFSF parents Jennielyn and Jaime ROSSI were looking for a preschool for their daughter, they were drawn to the LFSF bilingual education and curriculum. Today Gigi is in Gr1 and her academic and social development have been remarkable. "She is growing up in a multilingual environment that places great value in providing young people with a strong foundation of academic, social, emotional and physical skills".

LFSF, a little jewel of a school for all

Eric, Jason, and their children Stella and Xavier, joined LFSF five years ago. Today, academically and socially, they're still feeling lucky. And they are committed to doing their part to make sure people know that LFSF is a school where all families are welcome! 

"I love that the Lycée has a very tightly-knit community - everybody was greeting one another in the hallways! Mathieu answered all of my questions and I left with better sense of the education offered at the school.

I have since attended other school tours, and I have to say, I appreciate that the Lycée attracts a noticeably diverse community of families. Visiting monolingual schools has also confirmed how much I value multilingual education - it is #1 on my wish-list for a school (...). I can't envision another path for our unique, bilingual, Mexican-American family."
