The FIS is the only international school in the Nürnberg/Erlangen area. It´s exceedingly expensive, so I would try to get your employer to pay for it as part of your package. 

As far as quality of education, I have heard mixed reviews. I have several friends who either have had or currently have children enrolled there. I´ve never heard anyone rave about it.

One friend moved back to the UK and despite her child having good grades at FIS, had to repeat a year.

My kids went there for 2.5 years... My eldest did the IB Diploma (She did HL Math, Chem and Physics) and was able to skip a year of college (at SUNY Binghamton) because of the credits she got from the IB.

 

My youngest had no issues going right in to HS honors courses when we returned to the USA.
