The benefits of unstructured play
Your child’s first experience in school is critical to his or her future academic success. A deep understanding of the importance of these early years is at the heart of all we do at the FIS Primary School.
Our Primary School on the Oberursel Campus is a purpose-built facility where approximately 250 students from age three (First Steps) through Grade 1 begin their learning journey, guided by dedicated early years educators.
The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) curriculum provides the foundation for learning and emphasizes the development of the whole child – intellectual, social, emotional and physical – within our unique international context.
The Primary School experience not only helps students to build the skills that lead to future academic success, but also eases their transition into the FIS Elementary School, which is accessed via a forested path on our campus.
"My amazing FIS colleagues make work a great place to be. They inspire me to reach higher and try harder each year. I love getting to know the kids and I especially love having siblings of former students and watching families grow. It is a real privilege to be part of people's lives like that. I just love learning and teaching and I love the interaction between teachers and students."
