Celebrating 50 years of inspiring global minds

This year we are celebrating a wonderful milestone. Fukuoka International School is celebrating its Golden Anniversary, marking 50 years of inspiring global minds.

Since first opening our doors to just a handful of students in August 1972, Fukuoka International School has grown to an annual roll of over 300 students. We have become an IB world school, with a team of over 40 passionate teachers from all around the world. We have outgrown our original campus (relocating to our current riverside location in Momochi), and even acquired a secondary campus to cater for our expanding roll and increased subject offerings. We have improved our facilities and our extra-curricular sports programs, strengthened our community spirit, and continued to evolve and expand our curriculum to ensure we are consistently providing a high-quality international education. We have proudly watched as hundreds of students have graduated from Fukuoka International School, equipped with the skills necessary for success in an ever-changing world.

 

Throughout our special 50th year, we will be celebrating in many ways and we hope to involve as many of our past and present community as possible. The main celebration, a Gala Evening, will be held in March 2022. In the lead up to this event, each month we will be celebrating a different decade of our existence with student-led events and classroom projects.

We look forward to sharing our special year with you and keeping you updated on our celebrations below.
