a place to be creative
FIS has earned its world-class reputation not only from nurturing students' intellectual abilities, but also by stimulating their creative potential. From the early grades through our Upper School, a student's education at FIS is enriched with art, music, drama, dance, and a variety of other creative endeavors.
In the Primary and Elementary School on both the FIS Oberursel and FIS Wiesbaden campus, art, music, choir, drama, and dance are part of the curriculum and taught by specialist teachers. String lessons are available at all levels beginning in Grade 1, and students can register for additional classes such as ballet, guitar, theater, and private music lessons through the REAL Activities Program.
Middle School and High School students have classes and extra-curricular options for music, band, strings, dance, drama, choir, digital and visual arts.
Meet Our Artists
The best part about the arts program at FIS is the variety of mediums that we get to work with. The teachers support our interest in everything from acrylic paintings to sewing to sculptures, and much more. In art classes, we are granted a lot of freedom to choose what we want to create, which encourages us to think outside the lines and express ourselves freely. In addition, we go to museum visits and have workshops as a part of the course, which adds a real-world element into the class.
