MSF is exceptional. It is warm and welcoming. It provides an excellent international education to more than 580 students from 55 countries while maintaining a family-like atmosphere. Large enough to offer a wide selection of teaching and learning opportunities, MSF is small enough to feel like home. It offers a safe, caring, and inspiring environment for students to thrive as independent thinkers, discover their strengths and develop skills to succeed, learn about the world around them, enjoy extra-curricular activities, and form lasting friendships.
Our rigorous academic programmes and outstanding native-speaking teaching staff are our recipe for delivering the highest quality education possible. This is evidenced by a 100% IB Diploma pass rate in 2018 and a 93% pass rate in 2019, with an average score of 33 points and the highest score of 43 points (45 is the maximum). The 2019 IGCSE results were also outstanding with 100% of our students achieving A*-C in five or more IGCSE subjects.
We also understand that an individual’s academic progress and personal achievements depend on the strength of the partnership between the teacher, student, and parents. That is why MSF works hard on fostering these relationships in order for each student to realise his or her potential.
Our Welcoming Committee run by MSF parent volunteers helps new MSF families quickly integrate into the school community and local area and provide support through culture coordinators to ease the transition to a new home. The parent class representatives and the Friends of MSF organise events throughout the year to strengthen community ties and celebrate internationalism and diversity.
In 2017, MSF celebrated its 10th Anniversary and a year later held its first graduation ceremony of IB students. These two important milestones highlight all that we have achieved to date and the realisation of our vision and commitment to providing an exceptional international education with a family spirit. MSF continues to grow and thrive, and we welcome you to become a member of our vibrant, engaged, and caring community.
Metropolitan School Frankfurt opened its doors on the 20th August 2007 with 70 students. Today, enrolments have soared by a massive 614% over the past ten years making MSF one of the fastest growing international schools.
With its 13 000 m2 campus and over 10 000 m2 of indoor space, Metropolitan School Frankfurt has more space per student than any other school in the region.
"MSF was our first choice for our son. He had successfully completed the Primary Years Programme and had clearly benefitted from the small size classes, the curriculum as well as a dedicated and engaged team of teachers. We did not hesitate to follow the international pathway. We strongly believe that he has a better chance at being accepted into top universities with an IB diploma”.
“Returning home after several years abroad, we were amazed at how seamless the transition was from an Australian primary school to MSF. Now, almost six years later, we are still impressed with the academic content and the methodology of the School's programmes. The MSF teaching staff never fails to exceed the highest expectations by motivating the students to strive to deliver to their best abilities.”
“It is an absolute pleasure to see our child developing at MSF into a global young citizen with a strong sense of responsibility, and at the same time, commanding a well-founded self-confidence to be able to make a difference to the world”.
“The teachers have shown that they really care and have taken the time to make sure my son understands and truly learns what is taught. We have felt right at home at MSF as we have witnessed a more mature student, eager to share his learning and put it in practice in his daily life. Lastly, we love the high standard of the curriculum and the family atmosphere the school offers”.
“Our last school was amazing but we were a number in that massive, well oiled and executed machine. But we are not merely numbers here! MSF talks about Child centered/directed learning, which truly reflects our own family’s philosophy. The fact that the size of the school is smaller helped immensely as well."
“We all really enjoyed our year in Frankfurt and at MSF. Kids were smiling every morning when they left to school and I think that is the best evidence that everything was fine. I’m sure that my children got the experience and memories they will never forget and also food for thoughts for the rest of their life. As I have told to everybody, our target is to raise our children to be open minded Europeans and proud Finns. A big thank from our family to everybody.”
“We got so lucky with MSF! I'm glad to have seen the positive change that has taken place at the school over the years. The school is a place where the international community feels welcome and accepted, giving them a place to express and embrace the differences and similarities of all of our cultures. Without the teachers the school wouldn't be half as great as it is! I have sung the teachers' praise to anyone who would listen over the years as I am so proud that my kids got to enjoy their inspiring, nurturing teaching that also challenged them on an individual level. Regardless of the grade and the teacher the kids had a great year, every year. Some of them have become like family to us - we couldn't be more grateful.”
“Since January 2013, my son has been a member of a great place called MSF. After his first school day, I remembered what he said with a big smile: Dad, this was a great choice and I love the school!!! My son was so happy because he felt right at home. Once we arrived from the United States, the MSF staff assisted him with a seamless transition. I have seen my son grow tremendously as a student and as an individual. He has become a more independent thinker, confident, mature in many aspects and more importantly he is extremely happy to go to MSF every day. That says it all!! He often comments on what great teachers he had and currently have. I am very impressed with the level of experience the teachers at MSF possess and am confident that he has unconditional support from MSF at all levels.”
“We decided to enroll our daughter in 8th grade. We are very happy with our decision. MSF is a nice community and the teachers are highly competent and engaged. Our daughter is doing very well there and receives a lot of individual attention.”
