Teaching and Learning

Frankfurt International School is committed to educating global citizens, from our youngest learners in First Steps through to our seniors.

To prepare our learners for an ever-changing world, we need to educate them in traditional subject areas, but also help them develop vital skills and values that transcend subject boundaries and age levels.

The FIS Transdisciplinary Learning Model (TLM) identifies five key skill areas and dynamically connects these with the IB learner profile attributes and three core responsibilities of global citizenship.

By integrating the elements our teaching and learning, FIS ensures that its mission is being fulfilled by "inspiring individuals to develop their intellect, creativity and character to become independent, adaptable, socially responsible and internationally minded citizens.”
