International School on the Rhine (ISR), located in the Düsseldorf – Neuss – Meerbusch region, offers excellent international education from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in a multilingual environment. ISR is exclusively financed by tuition fees and does not receive financial support from the state. Furthermore, ISR is recognized as an accredited school by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. All proceeds are reinvested into the school to further benefit the students.
Powered by SABIS®, ISR offers an outstanding academic program, individual support for students, a varied extra-curricular program, and a multilingual school environment. ISR is a licensee of the SABIS® Educational System™, a unique approach to teaching established in 1886 that has developed into a rigorous, internationally-oriented, non-selective, college-preparatory education system. We are also a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS).
There are over 1,000 students from 52 nations attending Kindergarten through Grade 12. ISR students routinely achieve excellent International Baccalaureate (IB) scores and these internationally recognized diplomas qualify students for entrance to top universities worldwide, including Germany.
I have one child who graduated last year (first 4 years in German primary school) and one that is now in 10th grade (who wend to German schools in 5-6 grade but then has gone back to ISR for 7th +) and now is doing an exchange year in the US. I have found ISR to be closely focused on my children, willing to be flexible and truly a caring attitude. One thing that should be remembered is that the requirements are very high and it is very challenging but that is the standard they have set and parents and children have to be prepared for the expectations. I am certain ISR is setting high standards to prepare our children for success in University.
