Overview for Prospective Families
Thank you for your interest in Frankfurt International School. With more than 55 nationalities among our student body, we have formed a family-oriented school ready to welcome and support new members into our community.
Founded in 1961 amid the natural beauty of the Taunus mountains, our school has grown from a single historic villa to two distinct campuses. Both sites offer the same high standard of personalized education that includes a close partnership with parents.
It is important for families applying to FIS to understand that space for new students may be limited. The 2018-19 school year will pose a particular challenge due to the likely impact of Brexit upon the Frankfurt region.
While we will do everything possible to accommodate incoming families, the expected increase in applications will result in even fewer spaces than usual for new students. This will be especially true for those with older children who would be entering Grades 6 and above.
We therefore strongly recommend that, if possible, families begin the application process at least six months prior to the start of school. However, it is important to note that an early application does not guarantee space availability.
We understand the importance of providing incoming families with a positive transition experience and are excited to share with you A World of Opportunities that await you at FIS. I look forward to meeting your family and offering a more detailed introduction to our school.
