Today, we warmly welcomed all ISR First Graders to their first day of school! Students and their parents arrived on campus early for a photo session and the annual “Schultüte” ceremony where each child received a traditional school cone. Some children additionally brought their own very colorfully decorated school cones from home, a special tradition unique to Germany.
We’re more than happy to announce this year’s outstanding IGCSE results:
Overall, 60% of our students earned a grade A or A*, and 30% Grade B. This year we were also able to offer a wider variety of subjects in the examinations than last year.
Congratulations to all our students for earning such high marks – Your hard work has paid off!
