What makes us special

Icon Deutsche Lehrpläne

GERMAN CURRICULA

As at all German schools abroad, German curricula are the basis for teaching. This ensures the connection to the German-speaking education systems in Europe and other international programs. The GIB Diploma (Mixed Language International Baccalaureate) gives the student direct access to universities in Germany, Switzerland and Austria as well as to recognized universities worldwide. 

Icon Bilinguales Programm

BILINGUAL PROGRAM

The lessons are mainly in German; a lateral entry program for German as a foreign language from the 3rd to the 8th grade enables that our students can follow the lessons in all subjects from the 9th grade. Subjects such as art, sport, swimming, ICT, music or geography are generally taught in English. In addition, the IGS offers Vietnamese for native speakers throughout and French as a foreign language from grade 6.

Icon Kleine Lerngruppen

SMALL GROUPS

Our small learning groups allow quick integration into the school and enable the teachers to tailor the lessons to the needs of the learners.

Icon Grüner Campus

GREEN CAMPUS

On the villa campus, surrounded by palm trees, colorful flowers, banana trees and tropical greenery, the children experience a particularly stimulating natural atmosphere and learn with their heads, hands and hearts.

Icon Naturwissenschaftliche Frühförderung

SCIENTIFIC FOUNDATION

The IGS promotes natural history exploration as early as kindergarten. The focus is on developing perception, analytical thinking and environmental awareness. Environmental education is just as much a pedagogical focus as modern, experiment-oriented natural science teaching. All three natural sciences are offered in the upper school. 

Icon Interkultureller Lernort

INTERCULTURAL LEARNING PLACE

Pupils from 20 nations are currently studying at the IGS. Many children bring two or more languages ​​​​to school. Developing ideas together through cultural exchange allows our learners to grow naturally into citizens of the world. 

Icon Qualifizierte Lehrer

NATIVE TEACHERS

Our qualified teachers are native speakers with certified degrees who see themselves as learning coaches and educators. 

Icon Kreativität

CREATIVITY AND RESPONSIBILITY

Individual and social creativity is the currency of the future, and at the same time the prerequisite for being able to adapt flexibly to a  constantly changing world. The promotion of creativity and a sense of responsibility for oneself, society and the environment are central profile priorities at the IGS.

GET TO IGS SAFELY WITH OUR SCHOOL BUS

Many of our pupils take our school buses. The children are picked up right on their doorstep and reach IGS together with their friends on time. At 16:20 hrs, our school buses leave campus and drive your child back to your home. You can then welcome your little ones and your not-so-little-ones hassle-free and let them tell you about their day in a relaxed atmosphere. All buses are accompanied by our bus assistants who can be reached at any time by telephone.
