Learning at the Core of All We Do
ISS provides the educational excellence our world and the Stuttgart region, home of world renowned and innovative corporate leaders, requires.
Recognized by the state of Baden-Württemberg, we are authorized and accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the International Baccalaureate Organization and is recognized as a MINT/Digitale Schule.
We provide two campuses to serve families from Heilbronn to Tübingen/Reutlingen and from Pforzheim to Schwäbisch Gmünd.
Both campuses share the ISS Vision, Mission and Philosophy, aligned IB programs and quality staffing but are differentiated to retain the spirit and history of both locations and their communities.
ISS has offered summer opportunities for internationally mobile and local German families for more than 2,300 children for more than10 years. Our programming celebrates learning English and German and takes advantage of our beautiful region.
Enjoying our surroundings and learning how to communicate has built enduring friendships between students and staff from all over the world.
Our Vision is to place learning at the core of all that we do.
Learning at ISS is a transformative process for each of our students. It combines their unique predispositions and experiences with the development of skills, knowledge and understanding, to nurture and develop character and intellect. We want to inspire lifelong learning for all members of our community.
Leading education for internationally-minded families.
Our mission is to inspire, challenge and actively support our students and each other to become positive participants in a changing world.
Message from the Director
Education is about the child. It’s simple really, but too often, when looking at a school, educational jargon can clutter the ultimate mission – at least from the perspective of a parent. And yet this same jargon speaks to the depth of professionalism inherent in any good school. For, like the medical profession, teaching is a job of passion, of people and, most of all, of continual learning. In short, a good school inspires its teachers to do what every good student should do; learn and learn how to keep doing it for the rest of their lives.
I am proud to say that the International School of Stuttgart is one such school. You can see it in our accreditation with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the authorization of all three of our International Baccalaureate programs. You can also see it in our Strategic Planning where we continue to prioritize developing the quality of our Language and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) programming, and our continued holistic and experiential educational developments that include expanded trip opportunities and our Sports, and MUN programs.
So welcome to our community – we hope you will be challenged, supported, and most of all inspired by what we have to offer.
Mr Tim Kelley, School Director
I feel really positively about my school, my learning and my world. At ISS Learning Matters.
