Created, owned and run by parents, FIS is the only accredited French school in HK (linked by an agreement with the Agency for French Teaching Abroad, AEFE).
We offer 3 learning options: the International Stream, the French Stream and the OIB option within the French Stream. The school delivers a multi-cultural educational experience by blending the best of French, international and local perspectives.
Since its early days, FIS chose to create an unique bilingual environment focusing on language learning. By the time FIS students graduate, over 90% of them are bilingual/ trilingual. In 2014, FIS students were awarded “Top of the World” in Mandarin and French in the IGCSE exam.
FIS is also a community conscious school with a great emphasis on sustainable development. Since 2008, the school has been awarded the international “Eco-schools” label from the Foundation for Environmental Education every year. In 2010 and 2011, FIS received the “Silver Award” and “Gold Award” by the Hong Kong Council for Sustainable Development. After conducted a carbon audit, the school implemented eco-friendly practices in energy saving (LED lights, anti-UV filters on windows), canteen service (donating door surplus) and transportation (take “green action” after using air plane for field trips).
Finally, FIS fosters close relationships among students and teachers thanks to small class sizes (General Subject 1:24; Specialist or optional classes: 1:13) During the school year, regular meetings are scheduled to ensure students receive great support from their teachers, form tutors and university councillors.
