Metropolitan School Frankfurt is exceptional. It is warm and welcoming. It provides an excellent international education to 750 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 extracurricular activities, and form lasting friendships. As the result, we can be proud of 100% IB pass rate and 70% of our students have grades A/A* in IGCSE.
