Dear Parents,

We at the ISS and at the SGO consider multilingual programmes, individual, personal support and guidance of our students for a life in a digitalised and globalised world of work to be our fundamental task.
Under the motto of diversity, we want to provide a modern school curriculum based on a holistic and value-oriented education that enables all students to develop into independent, strong, and self-confident individuals. With the International School as an integral part of the SGO, the entire faculty, our partners and sponsors create a multilingual as well as


interdisciplinary and globally recognised curriculum for both international students as well as students from the region and beyond.
In addition to becoming skilled in digital technologies and receiving specialised and practice-oriented language and STEM support, our students can also acquire the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB Diploma) as well as other attractive qualifications such as recognised language certificates in English, French and Spanish, in addition to the German and bilingual university entrance qualifications.

"I see our IB Students grow, meet challenges and fulfil their potential and I am proud that we are able to offer such an outstanding educational programme."


IB Teacher
Pia Weber

"The IB offers the students a special way of learning - new subjects with broad-based learning content and a practice-oriented approach. In my opinion, the following motto applies here: "The journey is the destination". The students approach interesting topics with curiosity and an open mind, work in teams, learn to deal with mistakes constructively and develop individually. "For me as an instructor, teaching in the IB programme is an incredible enrichment of my work."
