World citizens made in Dresden

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.
