What Sets This School Apart
IFS provides families with access to affordable, premium, bilingual schooling delivered by highly experienced teachers with a track record of academic success. As a member of one of the world’s largest global networks of international schools, students enjoy international mobility, as IFS provides hassle-free transferability to 566 schools across 138 countries.
Bilingual and Multilingual teaching and learning are at the heart of an IFS education. IFS offers different language streams which follow the French national curriculum, leading to the Diplôme National du Brevet (DNB) and the French Baccalauréat. We have developed several language programmes for students with different proficiency, competencies and interests. These streams are designed to be flexible. Students can change and move across streams depending on their educational development and focus. IFS offers a language pathway of bilingual education in French and English with an introduction to Mandarin. They are embedded in the French National Education curriculum's structure and are offered to all Kindergarten (Maternelle) and Elementary (Elementaire) students. In addition, IFS offers an education programme for non-French speaking students who wish to gradually integrate into the regular school curriculum through our French language support programme. All these programmes aim to prepare and support student needs as they enter the later years of their educational journey within the French Curriculum.
Exciting New Developments
Over the past ten years, the popularity of an International Bilingual French education as provided by IFS has grown. In response to this growth, IFS needed to expand the school’s infrastructure to accommodate the influx of a larger intake of students. The new development includes the extension of Elementary school and a new Kindergarten within the same campus.
The new IFS Kindergarten is a building built for children. Based fundamentally on the principle of giving children greater autonomy and freedom. A new open-plan layout is designed to encourage greater collaboration, creativity and stimulus for learning. At the same time, the new facility maintains the high safety standards IFS already has in place.
We aim to be a school where:
When you learn, teach.
When you care, share.
When you achieve, reach.
When you gain, give.
When you enjoy, express.
When you excel, encourage.
Secondary average fees: S$24,413
Over seventy activities supervised by experienced coaches are offered to our students in French or in English. There are many possibilities. From Maternelle (kindergarten) onwards, students have the opportunity to sign up for sports, cultural, artistic, pedagogical activities and/or language workshops.
These activities allow students to discover and develop their talents and passions – be they athletic, intellectual or creative. These activities bring our students together by creating a common bond that forms the basis of the school culture and the IFS community by encouraging diversity and excellence.
Numerous inter-school (AEFE network), local and international sports and artistic events are organised. An opportunity for students to share their passions and challenge each other.
