Welcome to our Admissions!

We’re delighted that you want to explore Dresden International School.

As a proud IB World School, we offer a very comprehensive and challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum for children and young adults from preschool starting at the age of one to grade 12 on two campuses.

Our students are focused on developing the skills to creatively collaborate on the challenges of the future. We encourage their growth into changemakers who can work at both local and global levels to create a world with environmental, economic, and social well-being for everyone.

Admissions available during School Closure

In accordance with Saxony state authorities guidance DIS must be closed until the end of the Easter break (April 19) in the interests of public safety at this time of Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak affecting the country. 

Although campus is closed, the Admissions Office remains available for inquiries via email and will continue to process applications and provide admission decisions. 

During this time all visits to campus are cancelled. If you already have a visit planned, please contact our Admissions Officer, Katrin Schreiber, to reschedule your appointment.


Open Places in Preschool (Kita)

Currently we offer places for 3 and 4 year olds children in our DIS Preschool for the school year 2020-2021. You may place your child on the waiting list for the other classes. If you are interested, please contact our Admissions Coordinator Ms. Schreiber for further information. She will be happy to arrange individual appointments.

World Citizens made in Dresden

We seek students who demonstrate a spirit of curiosity, empathy and passion about their world. We strive to create an authentic learning community in which we genuinely get to know, value and nurture each and every student, and his or her unique skills and strengths.
