Teacher Compensation

Florida International School was developed by a teacher who spent 18 years in the classroom. We understand the amount of time it takes to be an effective teacher, and the hardships that come with being unfairly compensated for all the roles a teacher plays in the lives of their students. FIS does not believe in the traditional model of a salaried pay scale, nor is paying a teacher by the hour realistic, as it’s not in the teacher’s nature to “clock in” or “clock out.”

Florida International School shares the tuition and costs for each student with the teacher, paying our teachers 50% of tuition for each student enrolled in their HomeRoom. Depending on how many students a teacher commits to each year, educators can earn significantly more than working in public, private or international schools, while they work from home and facilitate the learning of each of their students.
