Franziska started her four-week internship in the Upper School German department at ISS two weeks ago. She already had the opportunity to take over a class in grade 7. "I had a lot of fun and I really felt supported by the teacher whose class I took over!", Franziska said.
She also enjoys the emphasis on respectful and tolerant interaction between teachers and students. "The students showed up to be very open and nice. Already half of my time at ISS is over but I'm looking forward to the last... Read More

A year ago the “Parents as Partners” initiative took its first tentative steps with the organization of a job fair where parents shared their professional experience with our Middle Years students. The Friday before the Fasching break saw that initiative take another leap forward as our 8th, 9th and 10th grade students visited a wide variety of companies to take a peek behind the boardroom/consulting room/design studio etc. doors to find out more about career possibilities for their futures. ...

Back in the 1990's there was a slogan for a telephone company campaign in Great Britain called "It's good to talk".
Yesterday and today at the ISS Degerloch Campus has reminded us of this slogan, and how relevant it is to what we do in education.
The time to sit down and talk about learning, to reflect on where children are and where they are going, to consider what we can all do to support them and to help clarify any mis-conceptions and misunderstandings about our school and our Program is... Read More

Sindelfingen Campus Grade 8 students again took part in the Schlau Schau in BreuningerLand on January 27th. This 10th Anniversary event attracted around 30,000 people including a number of local dignitaries and our students knowledgeably demonstrated the results of their research into the properties of air and how it affects the world we live in.
Great job Grade 8 and thank you to Mrs. Jones-Buerk and Mr. Kraft for all their support!

“Read in the Dark” – sounds at first like an impossibility, doesn’t it? But I wonder how many of us needed a torch as children, not because we were afraid of the dark, but in order to be able to continue to read when we were supposed to be sleeping?
ISS Lower School students experienced that thrill recently. They came suitably attired in their pyjamas (it makes reading more comfortable) and built forts with tables, chairs and blankets. Once these were made the blinds came down and the lights... Read More
