Teaching and Learning
From elementary school to senior school, we believe that students learn best when they are happy and feeling secure, and that education is improved when teachers and students work together and share responsibility for learning. Our school environment reflects these beliefs, and we are proud of the enduring positive and cooperative working relationships between students and teachers.
Technology is integrated here at ISD and we aim for every student to be a responsible, global digital citizen who can safely and confidently navigate online social spaces, use digital tools to enhance their own learning and contribute to the learning of others.
We are an international community and our aim is to equip our students with the skills to study anywhere, not to duplicate content requirements of a home education system.
Our curriculum is based on the International Baccalaureate programme. In addition, we offer students the opportunity to obtain a grade 10 and a grade 12 diploma, both of which are unique to the German educational system and recognized by the relevant German authorities. The grade 10 diploma is called “Mittlere Reife” or “Fachoberschulreife”, and the grade 12 diploma is called “Abitur”.
