Véronique Dussud informed the French Immersion School of Washington (FISW) community of her decision to retire at the end of the 2016-17 school year. FISW was founded in 1999 by Ms. Dussud, with the philosophy that children who develop their intellect and character in a bilingual, bi-cultural environment learn respect and appreciation for cultural differences, and are better prepared for their future in a multicultural workforce and global environment. FISW is fully accredited by the French Ministry of Education and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS). Today the school has over 175 students from pre-kindergarten to Fifth grade. Children attend FISW from a variety of backgrounds, nationalities and cultures.
Board member George Spix stated, "Véronique is an exceptional Head of School. We have been honored these past 18 years with her leadership and committment to the students".
The school is conducting an international search for the next Head of School. More information is available at: www.fisw.org/about-us/head-school-search.cfm
