French International School (FIS) was established in 1963 as one of the first international schools in Hong Kong. The school offers two streams: the French and International Streams, preparing students towards certification in the French national examination, the French Baccalaureate, or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. In 1988, FIS became the first in Hong Kong to be authorised as an IB World School.
Currently, the school is one of the largest international through schools in Hong Kong and welcomes over 2,600 students from Kindergarten to Year 13/Terminale, representing 40 different nationalities, across four campuses.
The school’s mission is to provide, together with families, a nurturing, culturally diverse community that inspires our young people to realise their true potential as confident, independent learners and responsible global citizens with moral values and integrity.
