FIS - Summit Primary Branch: Prep II to grade 12

Flipper International School

Flipper International School was founded in 1998 by Mrs Menna Selamu and Mrs Serkaddis Seifu. Seeing the lack of a comprehensive nursery in the city, the school was initially established to provide a loving and stimulating place for preschoolers to embark on their educational journey. Over the years, our school has gained a remarkable reputation and has since become one of the most sought-after preschools and primary schools in Addis Ababa. 

About us

Located in the vibrant city of Addis Ababa, Flipper International School has fast become one of the most sought after schools in the city. Over the years we have expanded to include five branches conveniently sited in major areas around town. 


Flipper International School follows the Ethiopian National Curriculum in conjunction with the Cambridge International Curriculum. We also follow the Montessori Educational System of 'play and learn' at Early Years level. The school currently provides both Ethiopian National Examinations and Cambridge Standardized Assessments at Primary and Secondary school levels. 

Campus life

Flipper International School operates from five branches across the city. Each compound has spacious classrooms, large play areas and plenty of both indoor and outdoor activities to keep students engaged, build team skills and make friends!
