FIS is an inclusive school and does not require a pass/fail admissions test. However, for placement purposes only, students whose home language is not English must take an English language placement assessment and all students from G3 and above are required to complete a MAP (math and reading) assessment. Students who are Grade 2 and below will undergo a short observation.
Due to increasing demand, some of FIS grade levels are full and currently have waiting lists. Because of the mobile nature of the community, spots do come up regularly, and FIS encourages all interested families to submit an application. Applicants will only be added to the waiting lists once a full application is received. When spots become available, places will be offered to the students on FIS waiting lists in the priority order listed above.
|Deadline for registration (new academic year)||
FIS uses a rolling admissions policy, however, spaces are limited. An admission application can be accepted at any time during the school year, up until early April.
