It is a dynamic educational institution, which welcomes over 2,700 students from around the world. It offers both French and British-style curricula and is the largest French school in Asia.

FIS currently operates four campuses, three of which accommodate students in the International Stream.

FIS is a private, not-for-profit organization. In the last five decades, it has grown from a small school with 35 students to one of the most renowned international schools in the region. Its students are from 40 countries speaking some 30 languages – it is a truly multicultural learning environment.

FIS operates two streams, French and International, under an overall Headmaster appointed by the AEFE. The French Stream follows a French curriculum and has approximately 2000 students.
