Field Trips

An Adventure for Students of All Ages

Field trips are an integral part of the program at all levels at the FIS. From museum visits to archaeological digs, to teamwork and leadership courses, experiences away from the school campus add to and enrich classroom learning. The great outdoors of Bavaria are visited regularly as part of the Outdoor Program and other school camps.

Primary School

In the Primary School, field trips are important ways of enhancing our IPC topics through first hand experiences. Our Grade 4 students participate in an annual three-day field trip to the Fränkische Schweiz region to enrich their IPC topic on rivers. Our Grade 5 students enjoy a couple of days in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Middle School Field Trip

Secondary School (Grades 6-8)

For Grades 6-8, there are both residential and non-residential field trips which provide for engaging and challenging academic learning, as well as the uniquely important character development of young adolescents. Each grade spends a week in September engaged in outdoor pursuits in the German Alps, focusing on the development of teamwork, resilience and problem solving. Our students also benefit from day trips in the Nuremberg-Erlangen area to apply their academic learning in outside contexts, such as science visits to labs.
