Alumni back at DIS

Over 30 graduates from 2010 up to last year met in a very happy community gathering. Since 2004, the first DIS graduation, over 380 students have graduated successfully. While most of them are still studying worldwide and also in Germany, there are also many alumni who are working now. It was a rare experience to meet so many alumni at a single event, which captured the special place that the school holds in the heart and memory of so many bright and successful young adults.

Student awarded with Johann Prize

Marie-Sophie loves writing. She loves stories, especially short ones with a surprising ending, but much prefers to write herself. She discovered the word-intensive genre pretty early for herself. Her first short and travel stories have already been published and she was recently awarded the Johann Prize. What a great success! The school community is looking forward to the next project from the MYP student. It is rumored that she is working on her first novel. We are definitely curious!
