The International School Hannover Region was founded in 1996 to serve the international community in the region of Lower Saxony. Control is vested in a non-profit corporation (GmbH) which is assisted by a School Board that includes elected parent and faculty representatives. The school offers programs from kindergarten through grade 12 and is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organisation. It is also a member of the European Council of International Schools and the Association of German International Schools. Currently 350 students from around 30 nationalities attend the school who are taught by over 50 faculty members mainly from North America, Britain and Australia. The language of instruction is English with German taught as a foreign language from grade 1 and French or Spanish from grade 7. Art, music, and computer studies are integral parts of the schools education as is community service. Extra-curricular activities include sports, music, yearbook, student newspaper, and student council. Special non-credit Japanese instruction is offered after school. The curricula and philosophy of education at ISHR is based on the programmes of the International Baccalaureate Organisation. We believe that the framework provided by the IB Organisation delivers a first-rate education for our students, encourages a life-long enquiring attitude to learning, promotes internationalism and offers flexibility to learning without compromising on rigour. The attractive, purpose built campus consists of large, bright classrooms, modern science laboratories, computer labs, art and design facilities, a well-stocked library, a large gymnasium for sports education and a fine hall for music and drama productions. The school is located in the centre of the city in green surroundings with easy access by car, tram and bus from all parts of the city. New students are accepted throughout the school year from expatriate families and at the beginning of each term from local applicants. Local students wishing to enter are expected to demonstrate a particular interest in or need for an English-language or international education.
