What Students Say About Teachers

“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.

“ISR has such a good learning environment because of our wonderful teachers.  They are extremely supportive and always sacrifice some spare time to make sure that everyone is on the right track, even if that means explaining it a hundred times.”


“I like ISR because we have teachers from all over the world. Most of them are really funny and tell us interesting stories.  ISR is great because there are so many events like the Lock-In, Talent Showcase, Spirit Days, class trips, etc.  And at ISR, I’ve found friends from all over the world.”


“John Dewey said, ‘The aim of education is to teach us rather how to think, than what to think – rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves.’ I joined ISR when it first opened in 2003. I have been growing with ISR tremendously as a person, and ISR is helping me to become a stronger, more confident and motivated student.”


“Going to school at ISR has helped me grow both academically and socially. The friendly but strict teachers here challenge me to be the best I can be, and my classmates contribute to the warm classroom environment. I am sure I will be prepared when I attend a top university, which is my ultimate goal.”


“I like ISR because we get good help from the teachers especially in the beginning when it’s hard. They really made me feel welcome.”


“I find the togetherness of my classmates particularly remarkable at ISR as well as the relationship between teachers and students. Everyone helps everyone, and everyone sticks together. This is not only felt during school-time but also at the great ISR events.”


“In the beginning, I couldn’t speak English. Then, I got so much help from the teachers that I enjoy learning at ISR. I like sports and music at ISR even more! At ISR I have so many friends from all over the world. So many nice teachers, so many fun activities. I’m so happy!”

“I love ISR! I have friends and teachers from different countries – lessons are fun. And, I can speak English and German now.”


“I like this school because it is fun at the breaks, and I like my new friends Arian, Josh, Sid and Johannes. But it’s not only about the friends for me; I like the teachers because we can laugh with them. And, it is really important that we have good teachers. I’m lucky! ISR is a really good school.”


“The kids particularly enjoy that ISR feels like a little comfy village where everyone knows everybody and is friendly.  They also like all of the diverse after-school activities on offer. Our little ones love to dance and think it’s great that older children read books aloud to them.  Our older ones think it’s lovely that respect of others is highly regarded at ISR; they learn how to deal well with conflict as a result.”
