H.I.S. is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School that has been serving the needs of the international community within the Rhine-Neckar region since September 2002. It is a not-for-profit, independent, co-educational day school for students from Early Primary 1 (age 4) to Grade 12. The curriculum is international and the language of instruction is English.
We are recognised within the German education system as an "Ergänzungschule".
In 2007 we gained our IB World School status with the official authorisation of the Primary Years Programme (PYP). Since then we have been approved for two additional IB Programmes (Middle Years and Diploma), making us one of approximately 200 schools worldwide with PYP, MYP and DP authorisation.
H.I.S. is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), as well as the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The school has been a member of the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the Council of International Schools (CIS) since 2003.
