Dresden International School's Vision and Mission statements promises a bold and exciting future for the whole DIS community. Our approach to learning and school community will see us develop further Dresden International School as a leader in progressive and high quality learning.
For our students, this will mean an education that is relevant, enriching and excellent preparation for meeting their needs of today and exploring the possibilities of the future. These statements and the DIS strategic plan will be a necessary guide to ensure that our students’ talents are being met more than ever in a complex, challenging and changing world.
To deliver this, we want to develop a collaborative learning culture based on best practices that inspire students across all grades so that they can take individual responsibility to move forward as independent learners, enjoying success and share their achievements so as to give back now and in the future. Our school Values – of being Open-Mindedness, displaying Compassion, Commitment and Integrity – are the behaviours we believe will help students, staff and parents achieve our Vision.
