The French-American School of Silicon Valley was founded in 1992 by a group of Francophiles who recognized the need for a bilingual French-American school in the expanding Silicon Valley area. The first Board of Directors was created with members who shared the same vision and philosophy of education : M. Jean-Louis Gassée, M. Georges Halpern, M. Alain Labat, M. Hervé le Mansec, M. Claude Nédérovique, Ms. Colette Siegel, M. Jean-Claude Zambelli.
The French-American School of Silicon Valley opened its doors in September of 1992 with a total enrollment of seven students. Over the course of the next four years, under the leadership of its first Director, M. Claude Nédérovique, the school expanded rapidly. To accommodate the growing Preschool to Fifth Grade student body, the school relocated to a larger campus, in Sunnyvale, where it remains today. In 2006 a new building was added: it houses the library, the technology lab, as well as the administration office.
