ISR - We Enable Great Minds and Strong Characters

Welcome to ISR International School on the Rhine. We thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. We work very hard to remain one of the best IB schools in Germany and together with the support of parents and the students’ willingness to work, we spare no effort to ensure that each student achieves his or her full potential. Indeed, achieving academic excellence and acceptance to top universities is a priority at ISR.

However, our goal is not only to purposefully improve intellectual skills but to also strengthen values in all our students. As such, our school’s guiding principle is to enable great minds and strong characters, with the underlying values:

  • Respect performance of others – “It’s cool to be good”
  • Understanding and respecting different cultures
  • Honesty, integrity, responsibility and sincerity
  • Clarity of thought

At ISR we practice what we preach: our school is not run on policies or regulations but rather on moral values. Similarly, our management structure and decision making is driven by individuals as opposed to adherence to a bureaucratic structure of an institution. Each of us knows how to get results in line with our moral values.

As a non-profit institution ISR is financed 100% by school fees and does not receive any financial resources from public budgets. This means that all income generated by the school is reinvested into educational equipment, materials and staff, all for the benefit of our students.
