Wiesbaden Campus: First Steps – Grade 6
Welcome to our Wiesbaden Campus. Established in 1992, we remain a small, intimate family school with the shared mission and vision of FIS – and a commitment that together we are more than the sum of our parts. An important part of FIS, we also maintain our own identity and build a strong sense of community.
Many of the Wiesbaden Campus faculty have been here since the school's inception and take great pride in its continued development and achievements. We enroll approximately 220 international students ages 3 to 13 (First Steps - Grade 6), from the Wiesbaden Rhein/Main region, with plans to expand to Grade 8 by 2016. All of our students participate in the challenging and exciting Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate (PYP) and transfer to our Upper School in Oberursel.
Our smaller campus provides a warm and personal atmosphere that allows us to create a supportive yet personally challenging environment where every student is known well, feels respected and is valued. We create an atmosphere where students feel safe and consequently learn best. Nothing pleases us more than watching our children learn over extended time, as they grow through their formative Primary, Elementary and Middle years with us.
FIS Wiesbaden occupies a spacious, purpose-built two-story campus, with superb views of the countryside. Our classrooms are bright and airy and include a well-equipped gymnasium, dance studio, music room and ever-growing library/media center. Our teachers and students are technically literate, and from the youngest ages our children use technology as an effective tool to learn and share their learning. The school also has excellent play and sport facilities and all children regularly participate in performing and creative arts. A wide range of After School Activities are offered throughout the school year, and an after school care-club is available for parents who need extended day supervision.
Our cafeteria provides mid-day meals and our "coffee shop" serves as a center for the community to meet each other at arrival and dismissal times. Where our children are, their parents are never far away, and we pride ourselves on being a school that truly embodies the notion of being family oriented.
Here you will find a warm and nourishing educational environment eagerly awaiting your child. We look forward to welcoming your family into ours, and learning and growing together.
