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.

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 2019-20 school year will continue to be a challenging one for admissions due to the growing impact of Brexit upon the Frankfurt region.
While we will do everything possible to accommodate incoming families, the continued 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.
