Both of my children attended AIS from age 4 through 5th grade. The experience was amazing. Both speak French and Spanish really well and benefited greatly from the international environment at the school, along with the small classes and individual attention. On top of that they each had the chance to travel with their 5th grade class to France where they attended classes at a local French school and lived with a French family. In addition we were able to host visiting French students in our home in the same way. We love AIS!
