About Vienna International School

At Vienna International School (VIS), we recognise that to prepare students for our increasingly complex and interconnected world, we must provide them with new ways of thinking and new ways of collaborating in solving our most pressing global issues. As such, our mission goes far beyond preparing students for good universities and prosperous careers; we want to create globally-minded and critical-thinking innovators ready to re-shape the world for the better. Through the curriculum of the International Baccalaureate (IB), we develop the whole human being. A confident young person courageous in their willingness to question what they observe around them. A student able to take complex and often disparate knowledge, concepts and skills and forge these into new and unique ways of solving problems and adding value to their world. We are proud of our inclusive entry policy, which means students of all abilities are welcomed here. Our academic results consistently place us among the top international schools in the world, while our sport, music, drama and other activities are all of the highest quality.

Super mixed feeling about this school. My child has been a part of it for 4+ years. We've faced discrimination (we're white), bad teachers, stolen property (that the school fails to act against), bad decisions on part of teachers and staff, staff not aware there is a school nurse (they just left a sick kid to lay on the floor until class was over) and more and more.... On top of it all - they keep singing expensive reconstruction projects (that you have to pay for) without any clear communication with the parents. You are being charged ridiculous fees for anything you can imagine (a school trip with 0 expenses for sleeping arrangements to Italy costs over 400 EUR with a train!). Basically they do anything in their power to expand the current student base at the cost of overcrowding the whole school for the purpose of ... more money!

I was at this school for the past 7 years and I must say my feelings are mixed. As in any other school I must say that it very depends on the teachers that one gets. The teachers I had I really liked and I must say they helped me a lot. However I am aware of people having big problems with their teachers. However the campus is very large and provides modern educational tools which in my eyes is a big plus that not every school can claim.
