ISR, an international school serving the Düsseldorf region and Powered by SABIS®, is academically-driven without being highly selective. The aim of ISR is to bring the full potential out of every individual student.
Placement into a grade at ISR is determined by establishing a student’s academic attainment, with age acting as a limiting factor. What has already been learned by the student is measured via a knowledge check for students in Grades 3–12. There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Kindergarten, although students for Kindergarten 1 must turn three by June 30th to start in August at the earliest. Furthermore, they must be able to speak and follow simple instructions, as well as be toilet-trained. Children in Grades 1–2 meet with the Primary School Coordinator and complete worksheets together regardless of language skills.
The admission process is intended to be personal and informative for all prospective families. Below is a schedule of admissions steps and the general order in which they may occur.
