For more than 50 years, the International French School (Singapore) (IFS) has celebrated diversity and bilingual education.
Kids can master bilingualism in French and English through tailor-made language support programmes included in the tuition fees.
IFS is Singapore’s only school that offers the French Baccalaureate (Bac) and French Baccalaureate International Option (IOB), designed to engage students in critical thinking and provide them with research and analytical tools. Through the dedication of its teachers, IFS puts the success of children’s academic, social and personal development at the centre of its philosophy. It’s no wonder IFS students have gone on to top universities all over the world.
3 Fast Facts:
1. Opening minds, opening doors
You don’t have to be a native French speaker to dive into IFS’s comprehensive bilingual programme. After all, the student body is represented by over 67 nationalities! Why is bilingual education so key? It teaches students cognitive abilities for better multitasking, decision-making and problem-solving. IFS students get a headstart in life to become truly globalised role models.
2. Holistic activities
From sports to arts and linguistic workshops, IFS has more than 60 after-school activities that form the basis of school culture by encouraging team spirit and excellence. Starting from Kindergarten, kids can explore their artistic passions from Sewing to Ballet, or expand their cultural appreciation through Arts & Cultures of Asia or Beginner Mandarin workshops.
3. Globally connected
IFS’s emphasis on global connections results in a seamless and trouble-free transfer process. With a single French curriculum throughout all school years, students can easily transfer to 525 schools across 139 countries as part of the AEFE global network.
“At IFS, my children have the opportunity to learn and engage with an international student body. The teachers create a welcoming environment for students at all ability levels. IFS provides our non-French family the resources and support needed to help my children feel comfortable and adapt to learning in a second language.” – Emily Robinson, parent of Rosalie (K2) and Marguerite (Grade 2)
