EUROCAMPUS as a name stands for a principle: It is a unique place where multicultural variety is not just a word or idea.
The German European School Manila and Lycée Français de Manille form the EUROCAMPUS, the first of its kind in the world. This campus is now home to 700 students with at least 50 nationalities after a quarter century’s existence in the Philippines.
The European International School was established in July 2003 primarily to provide shared services to the Philippine-based operation of the Deutsche Schule in Manila (DSM or German School Manila) and the Lycee Français de Manille (LFM or French School Manila). Both DSM and LFM were established to be a venue for the elementary and secondary school education of dependents of foreign diplomatic personnel as well as other foreign temporary residents and local residents of the Philippines.
Its first mission statement was to promote cultural awareness in the spirit of intercultural learning and understanding by embracing all professional, educational and human aspects of cooperation, promoting excellence, and developing autonomy skills while enhancing curiosity and respect for diversity.
EIS was given a Certificate of Authorisation to offer the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organisation on June 5, 2003. This opened up options for students of both DSM and LFM aged 16 to 19 to take the program making them eligible for entry into higher education anywhere around the world. Starting August 2007, the IB Programme was assumed and operated solely by the German School.
January 22 is the commemorating anniversary of the signature of the Elysee Treaty, which is the milestone of the French-German friendship, hence a crucial moment for both the LFM and the GESM.
On that day, we remember the importance of good relationships and common values, understanding and tolerance between cultures, peoples, and countries. Every day, on EIS Eurocampus, we are committed to both schools' common

Programmes and services are conceptualized at regular meetings approximately four to six times a year of the Joint Advisory Committee (JAC), a joint committee organised by an agreement between and among the European Intl School, the German School Parents Association, and the French School Parents Association. The Joint Advisory Committee is composed of the following: president, treasurer and a board member of the DSM, president, treasurer and a board member of the LFM, the (2) headmasters of both DSM and LFM, the (2) administrators of both DSM & LFM and (2) representatives or cultural attaché of the German Embassy and the French Embassy.
Implementation of the programs and services is handled by the headmasters and the administrators of DSM and LFM and the coordinator of the IB Program. They are also monitored by the committee heads and members assigned by the JAC as the need arises for committees to be formed for specific projects decided on by the JAC. Programs are ensured by the continuous reporting and close monitoring of Fund usage to both DSM and LFM.
