Our new partner, the Hanyuan Chinese School of Dusseldorf, GmbH, began offering Mandarin classes this week at ISR. Teachers from the Hanyuan Chinese School teach Mandarin for native speakers, as well as for beginners.
We are excited about the growing interest in this new ISR language offering, which is in addition to the other languages already taught at ISR: English, German, French and Spanish.
September 11, 2014: At the Opening Celebration of the new ISR, 500 guests enjoyed a delightful evening of interesting interviews about ISR, musical entertainment from ISR musicians, culinary delights and refreshments. School Director Eileen Lyons, Peter Soliman and ISR students, lead by Jonas B., together with TOP MAGAZIN Neuss Publisher Marlies Wisbert, lead the evening's program.
The guests included many ISR parents, students, and teachers, as well as numerous guests and friends of ISR from the Neuss area.
We warmly invite interested families to the ISR Information Day on September 27, 2014 at 2pm. In this informational event, we will explain what ISR offers that is different from other schools, what students learn and how, and the values we stand for as an international school.
ISR students will gladly offer tours of the school and will be available to answer your questions. We look forward to meeting you! For more information, please call us at: 02131 40388-0, -14, -15.
The new first graders of the International School on the Rhine (ISR) gGmbH came with their families for the first day of school and festivities on Wednesday. The director of the School, Ms. Eileen Lyons, the director of the Primary School Ms. Elizabeth Meyers, and the teaching staff welcomed the excited first graders and their families. Per tradition, the second grade students prepared a lively welcome party with songs, poems and hand made crafts for the new students. Presents for the new students overflowed. After this warm welcome, the new first grade students filed into their classrooms, met their teachers, put away their school supplies and sat down for the first day of class.
UPDATE August 2014: The International Baccalaureat Office officially confirmed the ISR’s average score with 34 points, which is the same excellent average as in the previous year. The best individual score is 41, a score that only 2.7 percent of students worldwide achieve (the corresponding German mark is 1.1 in the Abitur). This student will start reading Physics at the University of Cambridge.
