INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS IN THE RUHR
A number of international schools are available for students to learn in the Ruhr Metropolis and nearby cities. Four are established, while a couple reach back several decades. All offer an International Baccalaureate curriculum, unique styles of approach to education and size of institution.
Some local schools within mainstream German system offer a certain amount of English language education as part of bilingual studies.
One of the latest additions is IS Ruhr, the International School Ruhr based in the heart of Essen. St Georges offers a British educational curriculum in neighbouring Duisburg.
Most established and experienced of all is ISD, the International School of Düsseldorf with an over fifty year history in the state capital. ISR, International School on the Rhine has also more recently become established in nearby Neuss.
