Thank you for your interest in International School Hannover Region (ISHR).

We are excited for you to learn more about our school, its culture, and our world-class academic programs. Roughly 50% of our student population are international students whose families have relocated, temporarily or long-term, to Hannover from around the globe, and the other half are local German families who value an international education built around the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum in an English speaking school. Whichever group your family belongs to, we warmly welcome you.

We have over 60 nationalities represented at ISHR and are proud of our diversity and culture of inclusion. We offer the three main programs of the IB: the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) in our Primary School (Ages 3 - Grade 5), and in the Secondary School the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in grades 6 – 10, and the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) in grades 11 and 12. 

Choosing a school for your child is an enormous responsibility; we don't take your trust lightly. Our admissions team is ready to help you through our application process and will answer any questions you many have.
