Victor Wembanyama celebrates French program during surprise visit to school

Wembanyama was in attendance as International School of San Antonio was awarded a plaque for school’s French program

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Spurs rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama surprised some kids and parents at the International School of San Antonio on Tuesday.

Wembanyama was in attendance as the school was awarded a plaque for its official LabelFrancÉducation accreditation, recognizing the quality of excellence of the school’s elementary French program.

The plaque allows the school to bring in teachers directly from France and access a wealth of teaching and professional development resources in French.

Wembanyama, who grew up in France, presented the plaque alongside Valerie Bararan, Consul General of France in Houston.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg was on hand and received a signed jersey from Wembanyama.

“As a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, we always aim to showcase San Antonio as a multi-cultural, inclusive, and welcoming place that it is,” Nirenberg said.

The International School of San Antonio provides private language immersion education and is the only school in Texas that offers immersion in French, Spanish, and Chinese for children from preschool through elementary school.
