Leipzig International School
Founded in 1992 for a tiny group of expatriate children, Leipzig International School now welcomes more than 900 students to a learning community with strong local roots, attracting many German as well as international families.
From the age of one until graduation, students learn with us to become citizens of the world, while their parents form part of a united and caring community. Talented teachers, themselves internationally-minded and from diverse backgrounds, encourage and inspire students from first walking steps through to University applications.
Students are challenged to achieve their potential by rigorous curricula. In the Primary School the International Primary Curriculum promotes modern and relevant learning. In Secondary, we follow Cambridge courses to IGCSE at age sixteen, and for the oldest students, Grades 11 and 12, two International Baccalaureate options cater to the full spectrum of talents, interests and aspirations.
Excellent results in public examinations are an internationally valid measure of academic success. Another external yardstick is accreditation by international associations which analyse the school’s success in living up to its ideals, and require adherence to high standards in curriculum, governance, leadership, security and strategic planning.
Beside this sharp focus on achievement, we take keen interest in the well-being and personal development of each child. Initiatives like the school garden, outdoor classroom, playground buddy system, community projects as well as an attractive enrichment programme (extra-curricular activities) involving creativity, action and service, encourage young people to become balanced, versatile individuals with a sense of collective and personal responsibility.
