Finland International School Maldives

Finland International School Maldives (FISM) was opened in January 2019. Islanders Education’s partner company, Educonnect, in February 2018 signed an agreement with Finland’s EduCluster to open Asia’s first Finland International School in the Maldives. FISM currently caters to 250 students from grades 1 to 6. Currently the FISM team consists of 20 teachers, both Finnish and local, in addition to the Principal and Vice Principal. At the beginning of each academic year, a new grade will be introduced at FISM, with plans to start grade 7 in 2021 already underway. The academic year runs from August to June. IE and FISM are in  partnership with Educluster Finland.
