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.
The school year 2021-22 will be a special year in the school's history, as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary Year! In total, the number of students has grown from 13 in the year of the founding to 500 students from 50 nations, which impressively underlines the positive development and importance of the school. We can look back on a successful 25 years, and at the same time, we are looking forward to the future.
In recognition of this significant anniversary, we are planning to organize several activities - some large and some small. The activities and events are going to take place throughout the whole year.
We were delighted to welcome Saxon State Minister for Education Christian Piwarz to DIS for the purposes of presenting our improvements in IT integration for digital learning across the school and explaining the impact of the "Digitalpakt" funding initiative for the funding of new technology in the school.
We were pleased to host our first debating tournament on the occasion of our 25th Anniversary on 7 and 8 May. Twelve teams with more than 60 students participated from Germany and the Czech Republic. We are thrilled that our Junior teams from Grades 9 and 10 ranked fifth and sixth place after tackling complex issues with substantive arguments and rebuttals.
Twelve students from our orchestra travelled to Leipzig International School to participate in a collaborative orchestra workshop. Students spent the day in sectional and full orchestra rehearsals. This all culminated in a concert performed in the afternoon with a live audience!
We opened the PYP Exhibition with a face to face event held at School. The final Exhibition Showcase was a great success where students displayed their learning journeys.The PYP Exhibition is a very important part of a student‘s IB journey, as it is the culminating project within the Primary Years Program. We are so proud of them and their work!
During school closure, we as a school have tried to do our best to support our 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.
