Step 2

Come to one of our Open House/Parent Evenings. The dates and times are listed in Open House/Parent Evenings. You do not need to sign up,  just show up and we will look forward to meeting you. We also look forward to sharing with you more information about the school and answering your questions in person.

Admissions - International Friends School + 556 124th Ave NE + Bellevue, WA 98005

We operate on a rolling admissions cycle and will be taking applications and accepting families from September 12, 2018 through July 1,  2019.

After you have completed the application, paid the fee and attended a parent evening we will then organize the parent interview: 

We will schedule an in-person interview with one of our two founders. Children do not need to be present for this interview, but it would be great if at all possible they could be part of the meet and greet. 

Each family will receive an email with an admission decision no later than March 15, 2019 for fall and winter applications and July 15, 2019 for spring and summer applications.  If accepted there will be a letter and intention to enroll form (as a school philosophy we try to be electronic heavy and paper light). 

Remember, at all times we are here to guide you through this process! Reach out at any time to We are here to help and support you as you begin to understand if IFS is the right fit for your child.
