INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF BREMEN
The International School of Bremen was established in 1998 to serve the international community of Bremen. It is located within the walking distance Bremen University and Bremen Science & Technology Park. All classrooms are new and purpose built. Classes are generally small and teachers are able to provide individual assistance.
The students range in age from 3 to 18 years and are placed in Early Learning Centre through Grade 12. The students come from 44 different countries around the world.
The school is governed by a five member Executive Board representing the corporate sponsors of the school. The Director is the Chief Executive Officer of the school and makes all decisions for the school in conjunction with the Executive Board. The teachers are from the United States, Germany, India, UK, Spain, South Africa, Canada and Australia. All of the teachers are certified according to the standards of their home countries.
ISB offers an international curriculum drawing upon best practice from UK, USA, Australia and the host country, with all instruction in English except for foreign language classes. The curriculum in the elementary school is the International Primary Curriculum. In the early part of secondary, the International Middle Year Curriculum operates, while in Grade 9 and Grade 10 the students should study for the IGCSE. In the last two years the International Baccalaureate is offered. Specialist teachers provide instruction in music, physical education, art, drama and language. An ESL programme is offered for those students who need assistance with English. ISB is recognised in Germany as a STEM school (MINT-EC) and prides itself as an integrated Science, Maths and Technology school in an innovative way. The school is non-selective - however, SEN support is limited.
