Campus Life

A Place to Pursue Your Passion

FISW Horseback Riding with Students

Learning extends beyond the rich and diverse experiences in the classroom. On both campuses, we offer countless opportunities for personal enrichment beyond the school day for students, faculty, and parents. This includes after-school sports, involvement in the performing arts, extended language studies, trips beyond Germany, and an array of other options to ignite a passion for learning and growth.

Primary & Elementary School Students

Primary and Elementary school students (age 3 to Grade 5) can participate in athletics through our Junior Warriors  program. Those interested in music can learn to play a string or band instrument in one of our orchestras or the band, and through our REAL Activities Program, younger students can enjoy classes in art, STEM, language, and sports.

Middle & High School Students

Students in our Middle School (Grades 6-8) and High School (Grades 9-12) have endless opportunities to join one of our many student organizations, participate in the arts or athletics, and service organizations. Many of these activities meet during lunch/break or after school and on weekends. Two adventure trips are offered to students each year through the REAL Activities Program – skiing in the Austrian Alps or canoeing in wilds of Sweden. 

Adults

Parents, faculty and staff can pursue their interests through classes within the REAL Activities Program. These activities range from spinning and yoga to cooking and German lessons. Parents, faculty and staff are also invited to participate in weekly pick-up games for indoor soccer, basketball, badminton and volleyball; all levels of experience are welcome.
