At FH International High School, we value the experience more than formal learning. Through experiential learning, we strive to advance our students to become academically strong, independent thinkers who are capable of exercising rationality.

Practical-oriented Academic Culture
FH International’s academic culture is based on a practical-oriented education system. While we challenge our students to get the highest quality of education possible, we are focusing on student understanding. We encourage our students to have the required knowledge and voice out their opinion during discussions. Our goal is to help our students become independent, successful and happy individuals in the future.
FH International teachers follow a non-standardized program pace to meet the needs of each student in the classroom. Having students from different educational backgrounds and English levels, our teachers design customized study plans for each student to help them achieve their education goals and we provide regular guided independent study opportunities for each student. While some of our students might have 1on1 private IELTS courses, other students might be given a differentiated instruction and assessments depending on their own pace.
FH International follows a trimester system that divides the academic year into three sessions. While the first period is running from September to January, the second from January to March or April, the third period is running from April until June. Trimester system allows our students to take less courses in a session and focus on the courses they are enrolled in. It also allows our international students to start at 3 different times in a year.
