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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the FIS Upper School, there's an explosion of color gracing the walls. The pieces are part of IB art students' portrait project – an assignment that's become somewhat of a tradition in Grade 11, and which challenges students to paint a larger-than-life image of themselves.
This is the first year the group has painted portraits in color, and this fabulous video, produced by our FIS Media team, captures the background of the project, as well as students' perspectives on how and why they chose to paint them in the way they did. As IB Art teacher Darren Trebel says in the video, "Most schools don't get to work on these kinds of scales. They just simply don't have the room, or the materials or the funds."
FIS isn't just lucky to have the space and resources to repeat this project year after year, we're also lucky to have such talented students in our program to create these incredible works.Save
