Welcome to Dresden International School!
At DIS we are proud of our successful and diverse international community. We educate over 520 students between the ages of 1 and 18 years old from 49 different countries. It is important that our students are quickly made to feel part of the school so that they are happy, safe and cared for in a challenging learning environment.
DIS is an established World School offering the three International Baccalaureate Organization programs. The quality assurance we provide as a school committed to excellence also comes from our membership of the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Last year we celebrated our 20th anniversary as the premier international school in Dresden.
We prepare our students to become active, enquiring learners and our well-qualified and committed international faculty from 20 countries, our small class sizes, and our teaching resources and facilities will support them in their own pursuit of excellence. Our mission is to educate, inspire and challenge each student to realize his or her academic potential. We are always seeking to raise student expectations and are always trying to ensure that every student has the best possible preparation for their future. Our school motto `World Citizens Made in Dresden` reflects the vision for our students.
All of our students attend some of the best universities Germany and worldwide and will invariably succeed within it. The challenges facing young people today require thoughtful and creative responses. Critical thinking and key learning skills are an integral part of our broad and balanced academic curriculum and this, in turn, is complemented by a wide range of co-curricular activities. Students are encouraged to explore their various abilities and interests to the full. Our after school program gives students access to a wide range of clubs and sports including overseas competitions, drama, music, student leadership roles and community service activities.
The real warmth of DIS -- the atmosphere of friendship combined with endeavor -- can be best appreciated by visiting our school. Please take the time to search through the information on our website, to arrange a school visit through our Admissions Office and to contact us if you have any questions.
We look forward to welcoming you!
