Today, students, staff, and teachers alike dressed up in ISR colors for our Back to School Spirit Day! Students embraced this spirit day and red, blue, and yellow could be seen across the school. To make this day even sweeter, Spirit, our school mascot, joined us in the foyer in the morning and welcomed students and our Head and Deputy Head Prefects from our student leadership team handed out pencil and easers to each student. What a great way to start the weekend!
Luis, Grade 9, started at ISR in Kindergarten and since then he has continued to enrich the ISR community. He is a wonderful student whose talents reach far beyond the classroom. He has been performing magic shows, not only at ISR events, but also at children’s birthdays and other events for many years. Magic is his great passion and so he enchants his audience with his charming, cheeky, and funny demeanour on stage.
Maria Lucia, Grade 10, has been at ISR for seven years and she is a kind and charismatic young student. Currently, Maria Lucia is the Deputy Head of the Management Department in ISR’s Student Life Organization®.

She can be found in the SLO® Office on a daily basis and is always leading by example.
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.
