Celebrating Our Rich History

Thursday, April 9, 2020

The International School of Stuttgart e.V. will be 35 years old on the 30th of May 2020

As part of our upcoming 35th birthday, we are celebrating our rich history through stories and images collected over the years. The International School of Stuttgart e.V. (ISS) grew steadily in the early years and by 1993, 8th grade had been added and an expected enrolment of around 100 students led the school to look for additional accommodation.
 
The availability of a pavilion at the Wilhelms-Gymnasium in Degerloch enabled the Middle School (Grades 5 to 8) to move to more spacious premises with the use of sports and science facilities. In September 1995, ISS opened the school year with 125 students and 20 teachers. The ISS 2000 campus plan foresaw the bringing together of the Elementary and Middle Schools in purpose-built accommodation in Degerloch and the extension of classes into the High School with the International Baccalaureate Diploma as a world-recognized school leaving qualification.
 
The 1997/98 school year saw the Middle School still in the Wilhelms-Gymnasium, the Möhringen building bursting at the seams and a building site that was to become ISS’ home in September 1998.
