Dear Ms Ghica,
I wanted to tell you how well Leopold was prepared for the German Gymnasium by the ISR. In ISR they learn how to learn (by the regular and extensive spelling lists) (Lernen zu Lernen) and to cope with quite a lot of workload. That is why the 5th grade of the German Gymnasium is not as tough for Leopold as for the other children from the German Grundschule. That is also because of the immense advantage of the English skills, he acquired at ISR.
What Students and Parents Say
Dear Mrs. Lyons, Mr. Soliman,
We will like to take a little time from our day to express our gratitude to a magnificent team. This year is starting to be an amazing educational journey for our kids. They have great teachers, teachers who make our kids want to come to school daily and motivate them to the point that subjects that they use to dislike so much are now their favorite subjects. Teachers that understand and motivate kids to try their best and to give their best. Teachers that have empathy and love for their students.
Dear Mr.Soliman, Mrs.Lyons
On Friday I was at ISR to conduct a fun learning activity with Ms.Insell’s class 1C. I was impressed to say the least, the way Ms.Insell conducts her class, how she speaks to the children,how they immediately listen to her, how the kids work together to reach objectives , how she promotes los that they work independently, I was just speechless, her class feels more like a spa than a first grade class, kids are so motivated ,working happy, relaxed ,learning in the best environment I have experience in a long time.
“Through this mail we would like to thank the school for being the second home for our ward. He loves going to school … what else a parent could wish for. We would also like to thank the Math teacher of class 7A for being the best teacher our child could have asked for. He has been very motivating and this has surely helped my ward develop love for the subject . Thank You ISR!”Mrs Singh
“The ISR website, as well as all the information material provided, offer a very good insight of the school. Knowledge of the school, however, deepens once one is actually there. At this point, I would like to thank you for the professional advice, the commitment, the transparency and the empathy you continually displayed. What was particularly impressive to us was the readiness they had to respond to our individual questions and to answer them with relatable examples. That definitely won us over.
“Best regards,” familyBraun family
“Dear Mr. Soliman,
“maybe this comes a bit unexpected or late but I feel like I should address and recognize some of my teachers that really did an excellent job, not just teaching in class but also taking time after school, at home and in their personal free time. I want to recognize 4 teachers especially.
“Thank you so much for showing us the school and for all the information provided. I should say we did see quite a few schools during our trip and your school and you stand out. There are many schools which do straightforward selling which is very palpable.
“From the beginning at ISR our daughters settled into school life very quickly. The teachers are motivated, helpful, enthuastic and very professional. Our daughters are now confident, independent and have academically achieved and learned a lot.
“The Junior MUN trip was an amazing trip, with a lot of learning opportunities and fun for everyone. We had the chance to interact with people from different countries and gain experiences in giving speeches and debating our own resolutions and ideas. So much fun!”
“It was a great experience for me to participate in the Junior MUN trip, because it was something completely new that I’ve never done before. I really liked the way we sat in the committees and everyone was acting so professional. It was a very well-organized event and it was fun to debate about the different resolutions to my committee topic “the question of the Kurds.”
“Through this e-mail, I would like to show my appreciation for the hard work put in by my son’s science teacher. My son enjoys her class and is learning the concepts very well.
“Thanks to the ISR team!!!”
“R. loves his new school and he shared with us how you all made him feel on the very first day. Thank you so much for such a warm welcome and we really feel blessed to be a part of ISR. For my son, it is surely a second home. We want to thank the wonderful team of ISR. You are the best!”
„I am writing this e-mail to extend my special heartfelt thank you for your daily outstanding commitment. ISR is simply great! My daughter loves your school and I do too, because I know that the most wonderful person in my life is well cared for and receives the best education every day. Keep up the great work – I have absolutely no criticism of the school.“
“Dear Mrs. Wacker,
“I hope you had a wonderful summer! I wanted to thank you and Mrs. Hellman for the fantastic support and counselling during my IB years! In the end, I received and accepted the offer to study Aerospace Engineering at the University of Manchester. The semester will start on 14th September and my university career will begin with an integrated foundation year. However, this wasn’t the only offer I received.
“Dear Ms. Meyers, Mr. Soliman,
“This e-mail is to thank Ms. Ghica for being a wonderful teacher for both our kids. Ms. Ghica taught our elder son Pranshu during his Kindergarten and in Grade 1 and presently our second son Pratyay is in her Grade 1 class.
“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:
“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.
“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!
