After more than a year of planning and preparing, we are thrilled to announce we have entered into a contract for the purchase of a building as the new home for The French American School of Tampa Bay!
The school will be located at 2100 62nd Avenue North in St. Petersburg, just off Interstate 275 and near both the Gandy and Howard Frankland Bridges, easily accessible from both Tampa and St. Petersburg.
The 7-classroom facility is spacious and sunny, and the new playground will be located in the shade of beautiful well-established trees facing a picturesque lake with ducks and a fountain. The school building will be undergoing a complete renovation including a new playground installation over the summer. We are excited to welcome the children into this beautiful facility that is so ideally located. It is a very exciting development and we are looking forward to bringing this opportunity for a stellar bilingual education program to the Tampa Bay area!
With this hurdle crossed, we are actively preparing to open our doors in August 2018! Spaces will be limited and we are now accepting applications for enrollment.Please complete the online admission inquiry form and we will send you application materials upon receipt. Merci – we look forward to adding your child’s name to the class lists!
New Playground to be installed this summer !
The new playground to be built this summer on the beautiful, shaded school grounds will be connected directly to the classrooms and to the drop off area adjacent to the parking area. The playground equipment is of the highest quality and meets all safety guidelines. There will be a large pirate-themed playground structure, swings, slides, a climbing wall structure, activity panels, a sand and water station, and much more to provide endless opportunities for physical development and exercise, creative play, and best of all – fun, fun, fun! There will also be several picnic tables and benches for comfortable lunch seating and for students to enjoy the outdoors during special activities. New fencing and video surveillance will be installed to provide the utmost security and safety. We can’t wait to see the children enjoying their new playground!
Le nouveau terrain de jeu, qui sera construit cet été sur les magnifiques terrains ombragés de l’école, sera relié directement aux salles de classe et au dépose-minute adjacent à l’aire de stationnement. L’équipement des espaces de jeu sera de la plus haute qualité et répondra à toutes les exigences de sécurité. Il y aura une grande aire de jeux sur le thème des pirates, des balançoires, des toboggans, un mur d’escalade, des panneaux d’activités, des espaces sable et eau, et bien plus encore. Parfait pour s’amuser! Plusieurs tables de pique-nique et des bancs seront installés pour le confort de tous. Pour assurer une sécurité optimale, clôtures et vidéosurveillance sont d’ores et déjà prévues. Nous avons hâte de voir les enfants profiter de leur nouveau terrain de jeu!
