Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

MSF is the only fully-accredited international school (Ersatzschule) in the City of Frankfurt that combines the IB PYP and IB Diploma Programmes with the Cambridge International Programme in grade 6-10, including IGCSE examinations in grade 10 (recognised a Realschulabschluss) in Grades 6-10.
While offering a rigorous programme with key values of being international, independent and inspirational in the teaching, the MSF mission statement accompanies students on their journey of learning in small classes with engaging teachers to become global citizens. MSF balances the academic demands on students by encouraging participation in the wide range of extracurricular activities. The family like atmosphere, parent involvement in their child's education and in the social community at MSF are outstanding. The MSF missions statement MSF promotes a culture of respect, joy, friendship and family spirit.

Teaching approach of the school

MSF is an IB World School, teaching both the Primary Years Programme showcasing the PYP Exhibition in Grade 5 and the Diploma Programme culminating in IB Diploma exams in Grade 12. We also subscribe to the Cambridge International Programme leading to examinations and the awarding of the IGCSE in Grade 10. Our Early Years division are part of the IB PYP with a major focus on learning through play. The values of the IB Learner Profile play in integral part in determining the values, interactions and community involvement of our school. As an IB World School, we focus on fulfilling the academic potential of each child hand in hand with each child's social and emotional needs.
