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.

FIS Sustainability Council
Frankfurt International School's Sustainability Council is comprised of faculty, staff and administrators, and is aimed specifically at supporting the work of all FIS community members as it pertains to sustainability and helping to encourage, initiate and support development toward creating a truly sustainable campus. The make-up of the school's Sustainability Council, which includes a wide cross-section of constituents, helps connect both academic and operational experiences and expertise.
The Council's charge sheet states: "The challenges of sustainability are both local and global. The individual's awareness, actions and choices in regards to sustainability are a contribution to its immediate community (FIS Oberursel and Wiesbaden Campus) as well as to its extended community (Oberursel and Wiesbaden) and consequently, to the global community. By raising awareness of the topic with the students, faculty, staff, parents and contractors, and by implementing new strategies of environmentally-friendly behavior within the FIS community, it will help elevate the FIS facilities and practices to more sustainable campuses."
The Council welcomes any dialogue surrounding the issue of sustainability, whether it's a general question or concern, or simply a suggestion about how we may make enhancements. If you have questions, comments or ideas to share, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
