Certified by the French Ministry of Education, the International French School (Singapore) (IFS) – which was established over 50 years ago – delivers a unique French English bilingual education for international students aged 2 to 18 years.
IFS offers families based in Singapore access to truly affordable education, delivered by highly experienced teachers with a track record of academic success. As a member of the world’s largest global network of 535 international schools, the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE), IFS provides a unique hassle-free, transferable program to its 3,000 students.
The IFS Kindergarten – for children aged 2 to 5 in grades N1 to K2 – provides a warm, safe
and multilingual environment. Guided by IFS’s multi-cultural teaching faculty, IFS Kindergarten fosters and stimulates students’ sensory, motor, cognitive and social development. The French Curriculum adopted is also aimed at helping students build a foundation for academic success as well as a strong sense of character.
IFS is an inclusive international school open to all nationalities, including families who are not
native French speakers, and currently has students from 67 nationalities. For students new to
the French language, IFS offers additional support with French language lessons conducted in
small groups with a dedicated, qualified teacher.
IFS Kindergarten offers two main languages for students to explore: French and English.
French is a dominant language of international communication and diplomacy, and is the second most popular language taught and learned around the world! This is why IFS embeds bilingualism into its internationally accredited French curriculum. The curriculum is taught in
both French and English by two teachers, with individual topics taught in both languages.
