We have close links with the US Consulate in Frankfurt and the children of many US Diplomats and employees at US international companies attend ISF.
Our ISF High School Diploma is accepted by all US colleges and many of our students go on to attend leading colleges in the USA. We have a US College Counsellor who works closely with our students to enable them to make successful applications to US colleges, including Ivy League colleges. We are very proud of the achievement of our students Please see our school profile for details of College Acceptances and examinations results. Our students are prepared for SAT and ACT examinations by our US College Counsellor and take them with great success. We are the only school in Frankfurt that offer the Advanced Placement (AP) program, along with our High School Diploma as well as International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
