Learning in home languages leads to students' confidence and understanding
Within our Grade 6-8 program at FIS Wiesbaden, highly qualified and motivated faculty work with students in a team structure to create uniquely custom-designed learning experiences, continuously reviewed to meet individual needs and interests. Smaller class sizes, a project-based approach, and formative and summative assessment practices ensure high engagement and maximum growth for our approximately 60 Middle School students. After Grade 8, students are ready for a successful transition to our High School (Grades 9-12) at the Oberursel campus.
To provide even more opportunities in science and technology, the Wiesbaden campus has invested heavily in new facilities and offerings in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math) for students across grade levels. Classes include those focused on design technology, digital arts, and coding, and a new state-of-the-art visual and performing arts center will allow for more opportunities in music, theater, and art.
"We are a small campus so we often have coed teams made up of a wide variety of experience levels. I love when I see students who have never played organized basketball before, and were unsure about playing at all, start to identify as athletes.”

"I was at FISW for Grades 7 and 8. It is fun and family-oriented school, creating a safe and comforting environment. I loved how kind and understanding the faculty were, they created a safe and positive classroom space. What truly made it special was the size of the campus, it resulted in a more engaging and tight community. You could make friends so quickly because of the time and classes we had with one another, and got to know one another very well.”
