Take a Virtual Tour of our School
Our team is international, open-minded and passionate about life-long learning. Our diversity is our strength! With staff members from over 27 countries and colleagues from Australia to Zimbabwe we truly embrace and celebrate our cultural diversity!
ISR recently obtained the AdvancED® Engagement Review Report from “AdvancED®” (now Cognia™), a prestigious school accreditation organization. Of special note was praise for providing an impressive range of opportunities for the development of leadership skills for staff members and students. The ISR commitment to maintaining high expectations is perhaps best summed up through our motto, “It’s cool to be good”. We strongly believe that each ISR community member should help our students achieve academic excellence and also be involved in the continual process of building strong characters.
If you share our philosophy of ‘Enabling Great Minds and Strong Characters’, join us and be a part of one of the Top International Schools in the Heart of Europe!
If we do have vacancies which match your experience and area of expertise, we will be happy to get in touch with you.

What our staff members say
“ISR is indeed a first tier International School with students and teachers from all over the world. This is my sixth post in an International school and I can say without any doubt that it is the best by far. What I enjoy most, apart from the outstanding resources at our disposal, is the quality of our students and staff. Our students are high performing - we’ve got an exceptionally motivated student body and, I can say with a great deal of confidence that this is not a given in all other International Schools. On top of the great students, I enormously enjoy working alongside professionals of the highest calibre. Needless to say that its location, in the heart of Western Europe, makes my personal life equally enjoyable - traveling opportunities are endless, and visiting Luxembourg, the Netherlands or Belgium on a weekly basis has become the norm for my family and I. The proof of the pudding is in the eating … don’t listen to what I say … come along and see what we do … and then you’ll be able to tell other people to emulate your own best choices.”
Head of Department
“I love working in such a friendly and highly competent team. My supervisors support my personal development and give me the freedom to implement my own ideas into my daily work. I feel that my opinion is heard and taken seriously at ISR. However, what really excites me is the exposure to a variety of cultures that allows me to expand my intercultural skills.”
“You get a sense of being part of a wider community working at ISR. Whether it is the happy and enthusiastic students you work with on a daily basis, the fun and helpful colleagues you work alongside or our supportive parents, it all contributes to making coming to work each day something you look forward to.”
“I’ve been working at this school for almost a year now and it’s been a great experience! Sure there are ups and downs, good days and bad days just like with every other job. There are many school and staff events that help new people get to know their colleagues and make them feel welcome. I have a great team and I really enjoy working with them and the students. But the best thing about my job is the feeling the students give me when they show their appreciation for me.”
Member of the Student Management Team
“I love working with the other members of the science department. Everyone is so creative and the teachers and staff are always developing new ideas for fun and innovative practical work for the students. Coupled with our fantastic lab resources, everyone in the department is so eager to bring science to life, which makes the learning experience all the more exciting for our students.”
Upper School Science Teacher
“What I love about ISR is that it is truly a community. The relationships between students, parents, staff, and the local community provide a network of opportunities for friendship, intercultural exchange, and growth. The diversity of experience and collective team spirit make ISR an enjoyable place to be.”
Teacher Middle School
“I’ve been at ISR for over 7 years and I feel very much at home in this international environment. I love my job and students and I work with amazing and supportive colleagues! This is the place to be if you like working in an international school with high expectations- both from students and staff.”
Teacher Primary School
“As a new teacher I felt very welcomed and ‘at home’ starting my career at ISR. It truly feels like my home away from home, since I’m coming from a different country. I love coming to work every day and feel very supported!”
