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

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
Our Intercultural Celebrations were a great success! It was a celebration of how we build bridges rather than walls within our community; a vital aspect of the learning that is intrinsic to our ISS philosophy of education and school mission. In times when we are struggling with this across the world, we are role models for reaching out to support each other and learn from each other. The dancing, the Fasnacht Verein, the food demonstrations and the rich conversations made this a very special... Read More
