Frankfurt International School is pleased to announce a gradual reopening for all students in First Steps through Grade 11; our Grade 12 students are officially done with classes – congratulations, Seniors!
Grade 11 students returned to campus on 4 May.
During the week of 18 May, Grade 5, 9 and 10 students returned to the Oberursel Campus; Grade 6-8 students returned to the Wiesbaden Campus.
During the week of 25 May, Grades 4 and 8 will return to the Oberursel Campus; Grades 4 and 5 will return to the Wiesbaden Campus.
During the week of 2 June, First Steps through Grade 3 students will return to both campuses.
All grade-level returns to campus have specific criteria (for example, some grade levels are split in half and will attend class on campus every other day; other grade levels will come to campus for morning classes and other grades will come for afternoon classes). When not in class on campus, students will learn via the Distance Learning Plan (DLP).
Although our campuses remain closed to outside visitors, the admissions office remains available to answer your questions by writing to email@example.com.

The Writing Symposium will return to FIS for the fourth time this April 2020. The Symposium is a week-long series of Creative Writing and Art workshops with industry professionals, that results in a published book for student participants.
The course will be taught bilingually (through German and English). During the week, a group of English-speaking students will work with author Ross Raisin, while a group of German-speaking students will work with author Katrin McClean. Both groups will participate in a series of workshops with the authors based around a central theme.
Parallel to the writing workshops, a group of art students will work with the Scoventa design team creating artwork and designing the book cover. Completed stories will then be published by Scoventa Verlag Publishing as a paperback collection.
"This is an extraordinary opportunity to collaborate with award-winning authors and publishing professionals in the designing and creation of a book," says FIS Writing Center Teacher, Aodhnait Donnelly, who introduced the Symposium at FIS in 2016.
The opportunity is open to FIS students in Grades 9-12 and does not come at any extra cost. Interested students should have a look at the details and videos on the Symposium website and then complete an online application form here.
The closing date for applications is 20 February 2020. The course will run from the 20-24 April, 2020.
Copies of last year's book Borders/Grenzen can be purchased in the ABC Book Store or the Upper School Library.
