The Fukuoka International School offers a high quality international educational experience for students from ages 3 to 18+. We offer both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in grades 11 and 12 and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP). Starting in August 2018, FIS is a candidate school for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. FIS will become the only school in Kyushu to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP). FIS is accredited by the Japanese Ministry of Education as a School Juridical Body, "Gakko Hojin" and also by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
FIS values the connection between its host country of Japan and the numerous other nationalities within our community. FIS serves diplomatic families, mobile expatriate families and local families who are seeking a world class international education. We pride ourselves on preparing students to be successful in the ever-changing world. FIS graduates go on to earn places at universities all around the world.
FIS offers a vibrant and varied After School Activities programme. Students regularly go on field and cultural trips that extend their learning outside the classroom as part of the inquiry-based learning approach.
We invite you to explore our newly developed website and hope to see you soon.
