The French American School‘s lower school campus in Larchmont has occupied a section of St. Augustine’s Church for many years, the Upper School is in Mamaroneck and the Pre-School in Scarsdale. Now, with its planned consolodation move to the 129.69 acre site of the Ridgeway Country Club in White Plains, which it purchased a year ago, the new neighbors aren’t happy.
The school has promoted its plans, saying ” The site includes the existing clubhouse and the 18-hole golf course. Our vision for this 129.69 acre property is to create a low-density, park-like campus that will enable us to consolidate all of our school divisions over a period of several years.”
Development is opposed by the Gedney Association, which represents those who live in the adjacent Gedney Farms neighborhood. The Association has been vocal in opposition and White Plains Patch reports that over the weekend about 30 protest signs-“FAS-NO” were taken from residents’ lawns. Police say they don’t know who did it.
