Did you know that on the 30th of May this year, the International School of Stuttgart e.V. will be 35 years old? We hope to be able to celebrate this with a party at the end of the school year, but until then will be counting down to 35 with some highlights from our history.
Starting with 16 students in three composite classes in the Autumn of 1985, the school was located in the Böblingen Waldheim. However, by March 1986 enrolment had doubled and the school was seeking new premises for... Read More
Stuttgart - Because of the spread of the corona virus, all schools have been closed for over two weeks - including in Stuttgart. Of course, this also applies to the International School(ISS) in Degerloch with a total of almost 860 students. Nevertheless, press spokesman Matthias Krusch is surprised at how well operations have continued on the ISS since then: "Our students have lessons every day from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m." But above all: "The children have a normal, structured daily routine...

In true IB spirit, Grade 6, 7 and 8 have shown they are knowledgeable, with the confidence to adapt quickly to our new form of communication during lessons with their Science Fair home experiments. Despite many students not being able to collect basic lab equipment from ISS, our MYP students have solved problems by adapting their equipment and thinking about how they can still carry out lab-based inquiry at home, or indeed a hotel room. We have enjoyed observing the experimentation taking... Read More

Learning Assistants from both the Degerloch and Sindelfingen campuses came together for two full days to complete the International Baccalaureate Workshop entitled "The vital role of the learning assistant in the PYP."

Our learning assistants really do a wonderful job, and we were delighted to be able to show our... Read More
We are proud of three of our 8th grade students who have been granted awards by the town of Sindelfingen! Lincon and Rebecca for leading a school-wide “ECO Schools” initiative (a worldwide program that supports environmental management with student participation), and for promoting and teaching exemplary sustainable thinking and action. Chloe for founding and coordinating a book club in the school library and thus promoting the literary interest of their classmates. In addition, for... Read More
To celebrate the end of "Healthy Eating" in Spanish class, the grade 7’s put into practice what they have learnt about Spanish speaking countries cuisine. To show their language skills, students had to follow a recipe in Spanish and then share their dish with their classmates. We talked about “sobremesa”, a very enjoyable tradition after a copious lunch, and we shared differences between our own countries and cultures. They had a blast and the food was truly delicious!!
This year's Grade 10 students celebrated the culmination of their Personal Projects at the ISS Personal Project Fair. In the morning, students in the younger grades had the opportunity to visit individual presentation where students outlined their project, the global context and then went on to explain what went well and what they would do differently if faced with the same challenge again. It was fascinating to see projects ranging from exploring beautiful Chinese embroidery to innovative... Read More
The International School of Stuttgart e.V.'s vision embraces learning beyond the classroom and enhances learning opportunities for our students in settings that extend the scope for their inquiry and research. This is shown by the recent Middle Years trip to the Geld Museum in Frankfurt and the Marbach Literatur Archiv which made direct connections with our own, lovely school building.
Not to be left out, our Grade 3 and 4 students took advantage of technological design opportunities... Read More
