Grades 6-8 at FISW
Within our Grade 6-8 program, highly qualified and motivated middle years faculty work with students in a team structure to create uniquely individualized student programming that is continuously reviewed to meet individual needs and interests. Small classes, a project-based approach and formative and summative assessment practices ensure high student engagement and maximum student growth.
Dynamic, Inquiry-driven Education
Science, Math, English and Humanities courses fully align with the FIS Oberursel campus to establish a successful transition into the Upper School at FIS, or the international school of choice upon family relocation.
