Instilling a curiosity & a love of learning
Throughout their elementary school journey, FIS students follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP): an engaging, relevant and challenging framework that is reflective of FIS' guiding statement.
The FIS elementary school experience supports holistic development and is reflective of our philosophy of a balanced education. With small class sizes and a high teacher to student ratio, our students feel encouraged and supported as they discover their passions, broaden their skill sets, and spark new friendships through opportunities provided both inside and outside of the classroom.
Throughout the PYP and beyond, FIS students learn through inquiry and reflection; increasingly taking responsibility and ownership of their learning and becoming more aware of the social impact of their personal actions.
The FIS elementary education provides a solid foundation for our students as they move on to Middle School and beyond.
Our PYP curriculum is centered around inquiry, discovery, exploration and reflection and transcends traditional subject boundaries.
Through the Primary Years Program at FIS, students are empowered to build the skills necessary to take ownership over their learning, creating resilient global learners that make an impact on their world.
