16 Mar International School of Hamburg
With a growing student population of almost 780, and a neighbourhood campus bordering the city’s Botanical Garden, ISH is an integral part of the local landscape. Founded in 1957, ISH was the very first of its kind in Germany. To this day it remains the only institution in Hamburg accredited by the Council of International Schools. ISH offers the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) – two globally recognised curricular models that foster critical thinking, creativity, a spirit of independent enquiry and international-mindedness as well as high academic standards. The school combines the IPC (age 3-10), the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) (age 11-16), and the IB Diploma Program (DP) (age 17-19) to offer a seamless flow from kindergarten/preschool right through to university entry qualification.
