    FIS "feeder" school and interview for reception class

    Does any one know which pre-schools most students tend to have attended prior to starting at the FIS Reception class? Also, what does an FIS interview for Reception class involve? Will apreciate any comments or feedback on these points thanks.

    I am not quite sure there is any feeder school, however, there are a lot of French (pure French and mixed French+Asian) children studying in Bambino English Playschool.
    The majority of them will go to FIS.

    I have three friends whose kids now go to FIS:

    One friend whose kids now go to FIS sent hers to Victoria. The other two friends' kids who are now at FIS went to Tutor Time. I don't think that where you went to pre-school is a big factor, though. Being French almost automatically grants you admission, assuming there is space); otherwise you will be put on a waitlist, but you get priority.

    Presumably being French is only an advantage for the French stream, but for the international stream, going on the waitlist as soon as possible after birth would be the best way to secure an interview besides having a corporate debenture?
