Stuttgart - School Report Question and Answers

Are the admissions and placement procedures clearly stated to prospective families, either on the school website or through other means of communication?

The admission and its communication was very poor. Fortunately, as we are both educators, we knew what courses to select and were well aware of MYP and DP philosophy and curriculum. Otherwise, we would have been in the dark. - Jan 2021

Yes, very. Some have found that the admissions director is not very customer friendly, however. For example, I learned that a State family coming from another IB school was informed their high school aged daughters would have to repeat a year, since the IB program at ISS taught classes in a different order [they enrolled at the DOD high school]. A different State family had one child admitted, and the other wait listed. The school seems strongly supported by Bosch and other tech companies, and part of its diversity is due to their expat staff rotating in for a handful of years, which adds a lot to the school. Hindi, Japanese and Korean are among the most commonly spoken home languages after German. - Sep 2020
