ISR Partnerships

For over a decade ISR has been established in Neuss and is known as a leading international school in the Neuss, Düsseldorf and Meerbusch region.

Peter Soliman

Owner of ISR

We value our relationships with our local sponsors, donors, and partners who play an important and influential role in enabling us to realize our vision of becoming the best school in the region.

Through generous contributions and partnerships, we can offer even more financial scholarships to qualified students, relocation and housing support for our new families, partnerships with kindergartens, sports clubs, and music schools, as well as accept donations for school supplies and equipment.

We look forward to future opportunities to partner with businesses and organizations in our region!

The AIWCD has been supporting English-speaking women in Düsseldorf since 1959. Just like the United States, we are a melting pot! We began over 60 years ago with 20 members and have grown to over 225 members from over 20 countries. We are all connected by the English language.

For many years we have had very close cooperation with the AIWCD where we get together at different events and organize together charity projects. The annual Halloween party for children on our premises is always one of the big highlights for our ISR community.

deg-logoSince its foundation in 1956, the Theatergemeinschaft Deutsche Oper is Rhein Düsseldorf Duisburg gGmbH has been one of the most important opera houses in Germany. Under the artistic direction of General Director Prof. Christoph Meier, General Music Director Axel Kober and Ballet Director Martin Schläpfer, it has developed into one of the top venues for musical theatre and dance throughout Europe.

The two venues, the Düsseldorf Opera House and the Duisburg Theatre, which have a total capacity of around 2,400 spectators, offer over 260 events a year. The world’s largest ensemble of soloists includes both experienced and internationally renowned singers as well as numerous young artists who start their careers in the in-house opera studio, for example.

Great classics of the opera literature – works by Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Wagner, and Strauss – are just as much a part of the repertoire of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein as rarities of the Baroque opera, important modern pieces, or commissioned works by composers of our time.

The Ballett am Rhein with its 45 dancers is one of the leading companies in Europe and has recently been voted “Company of the Year” four times by the magazine Tanz.

The Young Opera is dedicated to musical theatre for children from the age of four, adolescents, and young adults and thus forms a further central focus at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. Every year a new music theatre production is created for the two major stages as part of the Young Rhine-Ruhr Operas cooperation. With its music-theatre pedagogical supporting program, the Junge Oper team makes a significant contribution to making opera more popular and inspiring new audiences. More than 30,000 children and young people are thus reached per season and inspired for contemporary opera at the Düsseldorf Opera House and the Duisburg Theatre.


logo dfb junior coachThe DFB-Junior-Coach certificate is an important pillar in the DFB qualification pyramid and serves as an entry-level certification for the C-Trainer license.

Football enthusiasts from the age of 15 are trained annually in a 40-hour course to become DFB Junior Coaches at ISR by Karsten Baumann, a former professional football player, and a coach and head of sports at ISR. The young people gain coaching experience at an early stage, learn to teach children to enjoy football, and take responsibility for younger players. In addition to sports-specific knowledge, special emphasis is placed on the character development of the young coaches.

Further information on the DFB Junior Coach Programme can be found on the website:


logo dhcThe Düsseldorf Hockey Club (DHC) has been the right address for hockey and sports enthusiasts in Düsseldorf for over 110 years. With around 1,700 members the DHC is considered to be one of the most firmly established and successful sports clubs in NRW’s capital. It is by far the biggest hockey club in the region and furthermore with over 650 youth members is one of the strongest youth clubs nationwide. The DHC is located directly next to the large office complex on Seestern. The entire club facilities were renovated between 2012–2014. DHC currently has two artificial turf hockey fields, six tennis courts, an indoor hockey and a tennis center.

Hockey is an extraordinarily attractive sport because of its athleticism, tactic, and captivating plays. The awareness about the hockey club as well as its membership numbers has been on the rise primarily due to the success of the German team at the world championship games and Olympics over the past few years.

There are currently 40 hockey teams who play for the DHC, 25 of those being youth teams. The 1st division woman’s team plays in the first national league infield and floor hockey, the 1st division men’s team is in the second national league in floor hockey and in the first national league in field hockey. The women’s floor hockey team won the German Championship in 2015, placed second in 2016 after losing by a thin margin at penalty shooting, and is presently one of the top German teams.

DHC’s biggest international success was winning the floor hockey European Cup in February 2016 in Minsk. Lisa Marie Schütze, Selin Oruz, and Annika Sprink are the current national players and participants for the next Olympic Games in Rio 2016. Oliver Korn won the Olympics twice (2008 and 2012) for the DHC. The men’s team’s greatest successes were getting “Deutscher Vizemeistertitel” (second place in Germany) in floor hockey in 2007 and 2008. Many junior national players and A-team national players are amongst the high performers of the women and men teams.

DHC places a lot of importance on nurturing high-performance players not only at the athletic level but also at the educational and career level. Hence the DHC Fellows Program was founded in 2009 to support the members of the national team. This program provides the players with mentors who ensure that the players don’t lose sight of their career goals in spite of their enthusiasm for hockey.

The junior players of the club have won a total of 18 German championship titles. This makes DHC one of the most successful clubs in Germany. Just in 2013 and 2014 alone, the club won three championships and placed second in three German finals. The DHC hopes to take home more German championship titles again this year. Several young players are or were national or West German players. Additionally, DHC is the official state hockey center.

DHC not only values competitive sport but also believes that sport as a leisure activity is important. There are currently 14 teams that fall under this category, four of them named “Parent Hockey” teams. These teams allow the DHC to successfully help parents and other adults interested in hockey to combine their love for hockey and their professional life. Many parent teams actively integrate parents and youths into the club, thus positively impacting their participation.  This aspect literally makes hockey a game for the whole family. The parents pass down their passion for hockey to their children and as soon as the children discover this sport for themselves, they normally get their mother and father back into the sport through the parent hockey teams.

Even tennis has been offered at the DHC since 1938 and is played on six clay courts. In addition to the men and women teams, there are approximately 13 senior and junior teams registered. Tennis training is available year-round by multiple full-time tennis coaches (during the winter season: training is held in the club-owned indoor court).

Neusser „Tradition“

The HTC Schwarz-Weiss Neuss is deeply traditional tennis and hockey club founded in 1928. The club is based in Neuss’ Jahnstadion and has about 1,000 active members. Our hockey department has a long tradition in the Bundesliga. Tennis is also offered at the club since its establishment and is often played with much passion across all the generations.

Our facilities include:

  • Two artificial turf pitches with floodlights
  • 10 outdoor tennis courts
  • 2 separate indoor tennis courts
  • A year-round clubhouse with an inviting sun terrace and Italian flair
  • 2 boules courts
  • Large lawns
  • A children’s playground

The club grounds are lovingly maintained, almost completely fenced, and spacious enough for children to run around and enjoy. The newly renovated clubhouse, which has an Italian flair, has a large outdoor terrace that is so inviting, you could spend hours there.

Hockey is at the center of the club’s function as it encourages team spirit, discipline and helps develop essential sporting-techniques. More than half of our 1,000 members actively play hockey, which means we have 5 adult teams and 12 youth teams. HTC currently offers courses for all performance classes. Children interested in hockey can playfully learn the basics of it beginning at 3 years old. Team spirit and social interaction are just as important as achieving great sporting results. Two full-time coaches, supported by a large number of co-trainers, take care of the children.

From the age of 10, children can go for tryouts at the “Westdeutscher Hockeyverband” (West German Hockey Association) and – if they succeed in the try-outs process – they can play for the “West German” team against the other associations in Germany.

The men’s team has for years participated in the national league (Bundesliga) games, even competing at the highest levels. The women’s team was a member of the national league (Bundesliga) for years, too, and is on a good path to competing in the upper leagues again.

Despite all the sporting ambition we have, it is important to us as HTC for our members to have fun and enjoy the game. Our mission is to leave space for personal development for each one of our members. We promote and offer a diverse array of training programs for our hockey and tennis talents. However, we do not forget that we have many recreational athletes who just want to have fun in the game.

We want to offer both recreational athletes and tournament athletes home at our club. The tennis department has teams of all ages who can successfully compete in their leagues. The hockey department has produced many national and regional players in the past. In addition, the HTC Club is the official Olympic base and State Training Centre. In both of these disciplines, we attach great importance to youth training, which is led by professional trainers.

Currently, more than four million children in over 51 countries worldwide are successfully learning with the KUMON method.

With the KUMON learning method, your child has the opportunity to develop his or her skills step by step in a friendly, positive learning atmosphere. The method provides joy and fun in learning so that even the smallest children develop a positive incentive to become independent learners. Courage, self-confidence, and appreciation of one’s performance are the basic elements for the learning center team to become successful learners, in addition to concentration and self-organization of their learning environment.


As a cooperation partner of ISR, Bettina Schulenberg, owner of the KUNST am PLATZ studio, has been offering art courses for students of all ages for years. The ISR ART Workshop has become an integral part of the SLO® activities program and takes place in the school’s beautiful, bright Art Studio on the 1st floor. The courses involve trying out colors and experimenting with them as well as learning various painting techniques. Fun is always guaranteed when pictures are sprinkled with confetti or funny-sounding objects lead to flights of imagination!

The Atelier KUNST am PLATZ is located in the heart of Neuss and only five minutes by car from the ISR campus and offers space for creative work and viewing. Anyone who feels inspired by art can enjoy the range of workshops and the numerous creative offers for children and adults or even grab a brush themselves.

Further information about Mrs. Schulenberg and her studio can be found on her website:


Since its establishment, the school has grown significantly from only 10 students to a current enrollment of 80 students between the ages of 5 and 18 at varying levels. The school offers a well-planned curriculum which is divided into different units, a suitable book series with 18 volumes, and an experienced team of teachers. More than 20 students have successfully completed their exams and received the HSK5 certificate, which corresponds to the C1 level of the CEFR – Common European Framework of References for Languages. This is a qualification that can be used to certify the knowledge of Chinese as a foreign language in order to gain entrance into a Chinese university.

The school operator, FCKN, supports the cultural exchange between Germany and China and contributes to the acquisition of the Chinese language, and promotes cultural understanding.


logo musicbox oxanaThe renowned music school Musicbox Oxana opened in Meerbusch-Büderich in 2006. Since then, children starting from the age of three to adults receive a comprehensive and qualified musical education. Since 2014, the music school has also been using ISR’s facilities to provide families with exclusive private music instruction. Classes take place after school or during school hours, depending on the schedule of each child.

The range of instruments offered is extremely diverse and ranges from early musical education to major instrument and singing lessons, as well as study preparation. Students of the Musicbox Oxana are also prepared for regional competitions, state competitions, and national competitions. Besides this, lessons are given as required to prepare for IGCSE examinations and also for IB examinations.

The team of teachers is both highly qualified and dedicated and promotes each student individually, taking into account their talents and their wishes.

At ISR events, the music school presents itself together with its teachers on-site and gives visitors a direct insight into the musical diversity.


logo musicbox oxanaISR is very proud to be a partner of the PSB and to support young people in their sports careers. This includes sponsoring various local clubs and top athletes and expanding the range of activities for our students. In addition to a modern triple sports hall, a climbing wall, and increased cooperation with PSV Neuss, which trains at the ISR’s district sports facility opposite, the modernization of the facility and the new artificial turf pitch have recently made a significant contribution to the school’s own sports promotion.

The association Partner für Sport und Bildung e. V. has set itself the goal of supporting young people who come from the Rhein-Kreis Neuss or are being trained here for high-performance sports and who are pursuing their school or professional careers at the same time. With their financial, material, and non-material commitment, the Partners for Sport and Education thus open up prospects for young, competitive, and top athletes.
