Message From the Principal

Welcome to Fountain of Knowledge School (FKS). FKS is situated at the heart of the dynamic city of Addis Ababa. Our community is warm, friendly and offers the highest standards of Education.

"Running for Excellence," is the motto as well as the vision that we thrive to achieve. Excellence is the sum result of qualified instructors, competent administration, comprehensive curriculum, modern facilities, and inspired students. As the principal of FKS, my duty is to implement a continuous and never ending improvement of these five inputs.

Coming from an Ethio-Italian family, and having the opportunity to live in various countries, I experienced an international educational system from the beginning to my Masters in Business Administration (MBA). I received my MBA with honors from the ‘Institute of Administration’ of Clermont-Ferrand, France; after receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in International Trade and Languages (French, English, Spanish and Italian) from the ‘Université Toulouse II’, France. I decided to move to Ethiopia and join FKS after serving as the vice-principal of St. Nicolas School in Toulouse, France.

  I intend to establish FKS as a prominent institution where students are prepared to enter internationally recognized universities all around the world. More specifically, our English/French bilingual program allows our students to be equally accepted to Anglophone as well as Francophone universities.

We are justifiably proud of our academic performance, but we are actually aware of our obligation to prepare young people to make their way in the world as confident, caring and responsible citizens.

Good schools are built on the effort of good people, and our teachers and students are among the very best. Why not come and judge for yourselves? We would be delighted to meet you.

Furthermore, students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities of various clubs that promote the building of well-rounded personalities relying up on holistic approaches.

We always aim to instill the core values which include integrity, dignity, honesty, loyalty and discipline in the minds of students starting from their young age up to adolescence. These values are also strongly established in our Pre School teachers, assistants and baby sitters. Every teacher is well trained knowledgeable, skillful, competent and dependable. Teachers constantly consider the students’ social, mental, physical, psychological and academic development and background while interacting and communicating with them.  Thus, FKS’s purpose is to teach and raise well disciplined, mannered, and informed students.
