ISS Alumni Reunions
Our alumni are scattered all over the world and yet many of them are still connected to and curious about their former school and the terrific people they met during their time at ISS. Maintaining alumni relationships is important to us and we have over 250 alumni who have joined the ISS Alumni Network and membership continues to grow. Last year saw the extremely successful reunions in London, Amsterdam, Munich and Berlin, the ISS season of European alumni reunions closed with the ISS Director, Tim Kelley, “at home” in Stuttgart.
The unveiling of the Future of Education. Now. took centre stage and alumni were excited to be part of the project, with the opportunity to “give back” with the Alumni Fund, and the ISS IB Diploma Center. The center will be dedicated to supporting our oldest student community in their final year at ISS. It will be an inspirational hub, an innovative launch pad where dreams are discussed, and friendships are forged for a lifetime of being an ISS Alumnus.

More and more Alumni are returning to share their experiences outside of ISS and our growing alumni community offers you a chance to support or mentor current students at career or university events. You can also find valuable academic and professional connections through the increasingly impressive ISS global network.
Connect for your memories. Connect for your future. Connect to rediscover the place you can always call home.
The ISS community has become an important part of each of our lives and we cannot wait to share our future successes with you because you helped us become the people we are today.

The IB Diploma Center
12 years ago, the class of 2004 found themselves an idea. They could work with their homeroom teacher to occupy a temporarily empty space as a sort of senior class clubhouse. Formerly the IT workroom, the space had been vacated just prior to the construction of our Middle School and Upper School Sport Hall. They called it “Purgatory”.
We call it an idea ahead of its time.
Our new building project has an established space where our IB Diploma cohorts can learn in a quiet area for testing and collaboration. But we want more for our oldest students. We want a flexible space with flexible furniture and presentational work walls. We want a space capable of hosting conferences as well as conversations. We want an area where networking and exposure to visiting experts and leaders can directly connect students with their future. We want an area where the older student community can come together and share their needs, their ideas and their learning.
The ISS IB Diploma Center will be dedicated to supporting our oldest student community in their final year at ISS. It will be an inspirational hub, an innovative launch pad where dreams are discussed, and friendships are forged for a lifetime of being an ISS Alumnus.
