Dresden International School is the premier IB World School in Saxony offering a full-day programme for students from age one to Grade 12. Our school is a diverse community of learners that practice the highest standards of rigour in learning and teaching. We prepare students as successful international citizens, through a rounded education taught in English. Students become successful and independent learners and compassionate citizens, who are prepared for high academic achievement in school and in universities throughout Germany and worldwide.
Our values are the behaviours we develop and practice in our school.
Our Kindergarten teacher Ingrid Ellis was honoured with the Christa Peterson International Teacher Award at the end of the school year. This monetary award recognizes faculty who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in strengthening DIS’ international-mindedness.
In responding to the act of racial violence and injustice DIS staff and school leaders have drafted a statement which we shared with our community. Within our Anti-Racism Statement to the DIS Community, we have indicated how we intend to work on concrete measures that address and counter racism in our work as educators.
On June 13 our 30 graduates from 13 nations received their diploma at a very special graduation ceremony.
We have faith in you, our graduating class, that you will head out into this new world with courage, not looking back but facing forward.
Nine weeks after the school has been closed because of the covid 19 pandemic we welcome back most of our classes to preschool and school campus on May 18. Highest priority is of course the health and safety of our students and staff. We ask our students and parents to read the hygiene and physical distance agreements carefully. The health certification has to be completed daily.
In the last month, we as a school have tried to do our best to support your children through these unprecedented times. So far, the feedback from parents has been very encouraging. Indeed, the most important news agency in Germany, die Deutsche Presse Agentur (dpa), just called our school a digital showcase school (“Digitale Vorzeigeschule”).
The preschool students (ages 1-5) learn in a beautiful, historic villa with large grounds in Dresden-Blasewitz. The environment is child centred, based on best early childhood learning practices provided by highly qualified, dedicated and caring staff.
Students from Kindergarten and from Grade 1 to Grade 12 study at the school campus in Dresden-Altstadt. The modern campus facilities with a large sports hall offer excellent opportunities for students to progress in their learning successfully at all ages.

Being taught in an environment where humanism, empathy, and the importance of being an independent thinker and embracing a life-time of learning has at its core set the foundation for my work in Human Rights and Development.
