About the French International School
Established in 1964, the French International School (FIS) is the oldest international school in Hong Kong and was one of the first schools in Hong Kong to offer the IB. It is a dynamic educational institution, which welcomes over 2,700 students from around the world. It offers both French and International curricula and is the largest French school in Asia.
FIS currently operates four campuses, three of which accommodate students in the International Stream. The two primary schools, one surrounded by greenery in Jardine’s Lookout and the other in a brand new campus by the sea in Tseung Kwan O. This post is based at the Blue Pool Road campus.
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. In Years 7-9, the International Stream follows a curriculum broadly based on the English national curriculum with local adaptations leading to IGCSE and then the International Baccalaureate in years 12 and 13. It currently has over 800 students registered.
