French American School Move to White Plains Protested by Neighbors


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.”
