International schools in and around Düsseldorf

Written by Garry and last edited by Garry on


A number of opportunities for children to learn in an international school environment can be found in and around Düsseldorf. The closest, most experienced and established of all is the ISD International School of Düsseldorf. The more recent ISR International School on the Rhine in nearby Neuss has also become well established in the local community and business envirionment. The latest addition is IS Ruhr International School Ruhr based a short distance away in the city of Essen, which is located east of the airport. Another international school can be found in neighbouring Duisburg.

A harmonious sense of community is an important goal of such schools as is successful preparation for later careers and contribution to worldly affairs.

A few local schools in the German system offer some English language education as part of their bilingual curriculum.
