“Dear Ms. V

“My son told me he is very happy in ISR in the first day; all of you gave him a warmly and friendly welcome! I appreciate your care very much.”

“I am presently involved in the IB program at ISR, Grade 11. With the approaching end of year 11, I am aware of so many aspects that made me get ahead academically and personally. Just to mention a selection of aspects, dear ISR teachers, thank you so much for:

• giving us a wide, reflected, and open perspective to the world as the IB program requires it, which enables us to look at our tasks properly, reflect and then get active.

• the huge passion you convey to us, positive thinking, and endurance in our challenging sciences HL courses. The Physics lessons developed my wish to become an engineer.

• the precise and substantial guideline in languages, especially in written tasks, it helps us to improve our level of writing skills in a measurable and effective way

• all your passion in the subjects and your helpful understanding of learning processes and how to get ahead - at short notice and subsequently in the long run

• and thank for always knowing how to motivate us and how to make us be confident about our life.”

“Dear Mr. Bates and Mr. Cete,

“My husband and I would like to express a big, big "thank you" to you on behalf of organising the MUN event and travelling with our daughter and her friends to New York. She returned full of joy and with unforgettable memories and impressions in her mind. Both, being an active part of the MUN conference and exploring the city together with you and her friends, deeply inspired her.

“Have a good start into term 3.”

I am a student in Grade 8 and I am an ISR student since I started in Kindergarten at the age of 3. Starting to learn English that early in an bilingual environment with native English teachers, I often do not notice whether I read an English or German book.

“Recently I became aware in what way the teachers opened my mind, made me understand how to think, and how to analyse and reflect while studying. Since I understood this, I am much more open and capable to master new challenges. Furthermore I enjoy being at ISR a lot. I am really thankful that my parents brought me to this school.”

“I now study civil engineering at the University of Bath (UK). When looking back to my time at ISR, I continuously become more and more aware of the experiences I gained and the benefits I got to enjoy there. More often than I had expected I notice that some of my skills are more developed than those of my peers. Specifically compared to those that did not do the challenging IB program, I am confident in time management, essay writing, and using a scientific approach to work. In combination with my English and German language skills, these helped me have a great start at university. I do feel that on average I was better prepared for university than other (international) students and I am very grateful for my former teachers for having had such a positive impact on my skills and my first steps after school. Specifically I would like to thank Ms Jordanova and Mr O’Brien for those amazing Maths and Physics lessons!

“I have not fully decided how I will continue my studies, however I may finish my Bachelor here in Bath and continue with a Master at a German university to maintain the international aspect of my education, which I started by joining ISR in first grade.

“Moreover I appreciate my ability to be fluent in two languages certainly almost every day. Sometimes I do get asked how it is to speak two (almost three) languages, and I feel that a further language opens up a lot of new perspectives, as every language functions in a slightly different way. I get to express things in a more detailed manner, as sometimes a word in another language is simply more suitable!

“Dear ISR teachers, Thank you so much for the great impact you have had on my school career!
