I have worked in several international schools and the FIS is truly unique. Recently a guest who visits several international schools annually said to me, “Your school is different. There is a special tangible energy. Everyone seems to enjoy and take pride in what they are doing and learning.” My German answer was ”Ganz genau”, which means “You’ve got it right!”. I personally believe that what really makes the FIS special is a genuine sense of community and belonging.
Of course, we have a lot to offer: a constant focus on learning, an excellent academic program, a vibrant performing arts program and an extensive sports program. Our facilities are wonderful and well resourced and we are fully accredited by CIS, NEASC and IPC. You can read all about this on our website. But what truly stands out to me is the sheer energy of the school that you can feel from the moment you enter our campus, just like the visitor said.
This energy focusing on school improvement underpins everything we do, from our overarching focus on teaching and learning, commitment to international mindedness and service to humanity. Welcome to the FIS!
