Connect with Us

Colleagues who connect with us are lifelong learners who believe in the power of transparent and inclusive partnerships.

We seek professionals who want to work with a team of energetic teachers, leaders and administrators who appreciate having second (or third or fourth) language learners and a range of learning abilities in a class, who are committed to a collaborative approach, and, above all, who put learning at the core of all they do.

The International School of Stuttgart is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers, national/international background checks and self-disclosure.

All who work at ISS come from different backgrounds, cultures and nationalities. We differ in gender identities and sexual orientation.

We have different faiths and various ideologies. We are older or younger and of various physical capacities. Our daily work and lives profit from this diversity. We believe and expect that every member of our community has the right to fair and equal treatment and to be protected against discrimination and harassment. A school culture based on fairness, mutual respect, and trust in dealing with each other forms the basis for our current and future successful cooperation. It is the task of each of us to make a contribution to this goal and create a climate of partnership in which discrimination has no chance.

Our hiring is non-discriminatory in terms of age, sex, religion, culture, and sexual orientation and is undertaken by the Director, Principals and the Human Resources Manager, in consultation with Subject Leaders and Coordinators.

I appreciate the trust within the ISS community. Leadership trusts the teachers to do their best for their classes and students. Teachers have trust in parents that they support learning at home and in turn, parents trust the school and teachers with the education of their child.

ISS Staff Survey

Our City

Stuttgart is a safe, well-organized and green city with lots to offer culturally. The city is the economic, cultural, sporting and social hub of a region with more than 2.7 million inhabitants in the heart of Europe. Over a quarter of the city’s population are foreigners, making for an exciting multi-cultural landscape.

The physical landscape is just as varied with hills, vineyards, sprawling parks, mineral springs and forests. 25% of the area of the city is forested and cycling and walking in the woods surrounding the city or relaxing at one of the 19 extensive mineral spas are popular pastimes and easy to pursue all year round. Skiing is about two hours away in winter.

Stuttgart is the administrative and cultural capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg. Galleries, theaters, music venues from classical to jazz and rock, the state opera and ballet are all symbols of the cultural diversity of the city.

The region is known for its high-tech industry and the city prides itself on being one of the safest in the world, due to low unemployment and crime rates. 

Even if Stuttgart is a great place to live, moving to a strange country can be a daunting task. That is why we have a cooperation with a relocation company that provides a range of services for new staff coming to ISS from abroad.


ISS Alumni Reunions

Alumni Reunion London 2023

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.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.” Dr. Suess

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.

For me, I think the very best part of creativity is collaborating with friends and colleagues. Admittedly, mine happen to be bears, pigs, rats, chickens, and penguins, but you go with whatever works for you.“ Kermit the Frog

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.

ISS has shaped my personality and has made me look at and tackle problems with a smile.
