We would like to offer a warm welcome and the opportunity to find out a little more about our caring, inclusive and diverse community of learners. From Early Years to High School, the International School of Ulm/Neu-Ulm (ISU) provides targeted support in developing the strengths and abilities of each child. This is possible because of our low teacher/student ratio, our professional and experienced teaching staff, and because of our comprehensive curriculum and broad-ranging extra-curricular programs.
ISU offers an accredited, internationally recognized, and robust academic program. The International School of Ulm/Neu-Ulm is an IB World School that is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and Middle States Association (MSA) . ISU is also authorized by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to offer the International General Certificate in Secondary Education (IGCSE).
ISU is recognized by the Bavarian State Government. The IGCSE gained at ISU can be transcribed in Munich by the Bavarian Ministry of Education and Culture as equivalent Realschulabschluss (Mittlere Reife) . The IB Diploma Programme is recognised as a university entrance qualification around the world, including Germany.
We deliver an inclusive education that seeks to meet the needs of the whole child, nurturing their well-being and fostering a strong sense of community. By emphasizing these values, we are realizing our Guiding Statements.
Our admissions team works with prospective students and parents throughout the year and we are currently accepting applications for all grade levels, including kindergarten (Early Years).
We encourage you to explore our website further and get in touch here if you would like to find out more about our small yet warm, creative and dynamic community.
Welcome to ISU!
