Additional Learning Opportunities
At ISD, we are proud to offer learning opportunities which are not necessarily found in other international schools, as we aim to meet our students’ needs while incorporating the local culture.
While English is the common working language at ISD, we recognise the importance of students having a firm grounding in their native language. We therefore offer specific programmes that support students in the continued development of their mother tongue.
At ISD, we embedded the German school practice of the “Praktikum” into our grade 10 curriculum: all our students participate in a two-week work experience to gain an introductory understanding of the business world.
In many countries, including Germany, grade 10 is a significant educational staging post. Students whose German language level is at or close to native level are offered the opportunity to obtain the German grade 10 diploma “Mittlere Reife”.
