The State of Hesse has mandated that all schools remain closed until Monday, 20 April to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
Regular communications are being shared with current FIS Community members during the school closure.
Although our campuses are currently closed, the admissions office remains available to answer your questions by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upper School House System
The House System at FIS provides opportunities for student leadership, intramural competition, and cross-grade mentoring programs to students in Grades 6-12.
Houses have been carefully created to represent and reflect the “family-oriented” nature of the school and its mission. Each house has been named after one of the school's founding families – six founding board members, the founding head of school and the founding custodians. These historical FIS families were chosen as they represent the foundation that the school was built upon – and which will never change.
FIS decided that eight Houses would be an appropriate number to divide all of our students and avoid creating logistical challenges.
