A Mission and Purpose More Relevant Than Ever
ast year we celebrated our 50th Anniversary – a milestone that prompted us to reflect on the incredible journey that has brought us to where we are today and look ahead to the potential and opportunities of the next 50 years. French American International School is nestled among a dynamic and growing community in San Francisco. With the opening SF Jazz and various local restaurants and resources, the community continues to grow and engage with individuals that live and breathe in Hayes Valley. The urban environment complements the structure that French American and International provides our students, which enables them to be successful, independent, well-rounded, academic, athletic and creative individuals. During the 2011-2012 academic year, the Board, together with our community, invested time in a thorough strategic planning exercise. As the process evolved, it became clear that the School’s original mission and purpose are more relevant than ever and will continue to guide our students and school well into this century. Our core values of academic excellence, bilingualism, internationalism, cross-cultural communication, critical thinking and diversity in its many forms are what have distinguished us since our foundation in 1962 and will continue to drive our decision-making as we take the school forward into the rest of the 21st century. Year after year, it is the support of our community that helps our students thrive. We finished last fiscal year with an operating surplus due to careful management of tuition funds, our endowment, and fundraising efforts. Tuition revenue was supported by successful fundraising - allowing the school to attract the best teachers from all over the world, develop and support our strong curriculum, provide our students with the tools they need for high academic achievement, and continue our commitment to diversity at all levels.
2 | French American and International Communiqué 2011-2012
We would like to thank each of you for supporting this culture of philanthropy – helping the school meet its financial goals, maintain a well-balanced budget, and deliver a consistently strong program. We recognize that excellence in education demands a lot from our parents and community – financially, physically, and emotionally. With the ongoing support and involvement of our much valued donors, French American and International will continue to deliver on our school’s mission and purpose, providing an exemplary educational environment to shape our current students into future leaders.
ous avons célébré l’année dernière notre 50ème anniversaire, un jalon qui invite à la réflexion quant au parcours incroyable qui nous a permis d’occuper la place qui est la nôtre aujourd’hui, et au potentiel et aux opportunités qui s’offrent à nous pour les 50 prochaines années. Le Lycée International Franco-Américain est niché au sein d’une communauté dynamique et en pleine expansion de San Francisco. Avec l’ouverture de SF Jazz et de nombreux restaurants et services locaux, cette communauté ne cesse de se développer et de mobiliser toute la population de Hayes Valley. L’environnement urbain vient compléter la structure que le Lycée International FrancoAméricain offre aux élèves et favorise leur réussite, leur indépendance, l’équilibre de leurs vies scolaires, athlétiques, et créatives. Tout au long de l’année scolaire 2011-2012, le Conseil de gestion, en collaboration avec notre communauté, s’est investi dans le cadre d’un exercice de planification stratégique approfondi qui a permis de confirmer la pertinence de la mission initiale de l’établissement et de sa vision. Il ne subsiste à l’issue de ce processus aucune ambiguïté quant à leur actualité et elles continueront à guider nos élèves et notre établissement au cours du siècle à venir. Nos valeurs fondamentales d’excellence
scolaire, de bilinguisme, d’internationalisme, de communication interculturelle, de réflexion critique et de diversité sous ses toutes ses différentes formes font notre caractère unique depuis notre fondation en 1962 et resteront un facteur primordial de notre prise de décisions lors du choix des orientations de l’établissement pour le reste du 21e siècle. Tout au long des années, c’est grâce au soutien de notre communauté que nos élèves s’épanouissent. Nous avons clôturé l’exercice comptable qui vient de s’achever sur un excédent opérationnel grâce à une gestion prudente des frais de scolarité, de notre fonds de dotation, ainsi que nos initiatives de levées de fonds. Les revenus issus des frais de scolarité ont été complétés par la collecte de fonds considérables, ce qui a permis à l’établissement d’attirer les meilleurs enseignants du monde entier, de peaufiner et de financer un programme pédagogique solide, de mettre à la disposition de nos élèves les outils dont ils ont besoin pour obtenir des résultats scolaires exceptionnels, et de réaffirmer notre engagement en faveur de la diversité à tous les niveaux. Nous tenons à remercier chaleureusement chacun de vous pour votre contribution à cette culture philanthropique – vous aidez ainsi l’établissement à atteindre ses objectifs financiers, à veiller à l’équilibre de son budget, et à offrir un programme solide et cohérent. Nous avons conscience du fait que l’excellence de l’éducation s’accompagne de nombreuses exigences pour nos parents et notre communauté – aux niveaux financier, physique et affectif. Grâce au soutien sans cesse renouvelé et à l’implication constante de nos précieux donateurs, le Lycée International Franco-Américain perpétuera la mission et la vision de notre établissement, un environnement éducatif exemplaire grâce auquel nos élèves actuels seront les leaders de l’avenir.

Endowment Fund Annual Report Fiscal Year ending June 30, 2012 Endowment Funds and Capital Projects Received July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012 French American and International value the generous support of our parents, alumni, and friends who made gifts, pledges, and pledge payments in support of endowment, capital, and other special projects during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. These gifts help build a better future for our school and our students.
Overview of the Endowment French American International School’s endowment contributes operating revenue for the school. Through the generosity of donors over the years, French American International School’s endowment stands at $5,636,826 (as of June 30, 2012). The Endowment has a separate Board of Trustees and an independent investment manager overseeing its affairs.

Expenses (Mgmt Fee paid to Advisor and Tax Prep) ($175,000) -3.00% _____________________________________________________________ Ending Balance (June 30, 2012)
Investment Perspective As the above table shows, the endowment was down slightly over this 12-month period from an investment perspective. Dividends, interest, and capital gains were down 0.43% in total. The fees paid to our investment consultant and accountant cost an additional 0.46%. Note that the endowment invests in mutual funds, and the investment return of -0.43% includes all mutual fund fees. Over the long term, we expect the endowment to earn at least 4% above educational inflation, but with considerable variation from year to year. We transfer 4% on average to the school every year, but use a spending rule that damps down volatility, so the amount transferred each year varies much less than the variability in endowment returns.
6 | French American and International Communiqué 2011-2012
As to why the endowment was down 0.43% before expenses and transfers, we currently manage the endowment to a target asset allocation of 35% fixed income, 35% domestic equity, 25% international equity, and 5% real assets. That allocation led directly to this year’s investment performance:
Asset Class Benchmark Index
Target Return Allocation 6/30/11– 6/30/12
Barclay’s Aggregte Bond Index
DJ Wilshire 5000 Index
MSCI ACWI ex-US Index
Real Assets DJ UBS Commodity Index 5% -14.32% ______________________________________________________________________________________ Total
While our allocations vary slightly over the year, and while we are not exactly invested in these indices, the overall return closely matches the endowment investment return.
Endowment In-Action Endowment income produces a stable, permanent, reliable flow of money that allows an institution to better plan for current students and for generations to come. A healthy endowment adequately supports financial aid, facility maintenance and improvements, educational programs, and teachers. In a nutshell, a healthy endowment is an insurance policy against tumultuous financial markets and swings in enrollment, and provides greater budget flexibility. In 2012 we transferred $175,000 from the endowment to the school, representing less than 1% of our annual operating budget. Our students benefit from a strong endowment as the school is better able to fund financial aid needs, enhance our academic and athletic programming and keep up with advances in technology and science. Our teachers benefit as the school is better able to provide more resources and professional development opportunities.
Goals for the Endowment Over the past several years, thanks to the generosity of our community, we have seen significant growth in our endowment. However, our endowment is well below the median of comparable Bay Area schools and we plan to make a concerted effort to further build our endowment over the next five years. An endowment of $15 million would bring us up to the median and would contribute approximately $600,000 to the school’s budget annually. With that kind of funding, French American and International would be better able to reinvest in the school’s most important assets: students and teachers. With your support we can enhance the school’s financial position and provide an unparalleled education year after year.

Gifts received July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012
The Annual Fund is French American and International’s single largest fundraising initiative, supported by donors from every constituency. We are extraordinarily grateful to our current families for their generosity and commitment to the Annual Fund and to the many alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, and staff who believe in the impact their contributions have on our school. The Annual Fund supports many aspects of the school, but at its heart, it allows us to continually invest in our programs, facility, staff and, most importantly, our students. Thank you! We would also like to extend special thanks to the co-chairs of the 2011-2012 Annual Fund and to the nearly 50 volunteers who supported their efforts as class captains, phonathon volunteers, and all-round advocates for our dynamic program.
