SIS Kassel

One school, two languages, many cultures!

At SIS Kassel, native-speaking teachers implement the bilingual concept, bringing it to life amidst a close-knit school community. Both local and international families value the school's international flair and bilingual education.

Dear parents,
our Primary School with Reception Programme opened its doors in September 2014 in Kassel-Marbachshöhe. Our new school building offers a safe and comfortable learning environment in a familiar learning community. Starting with the school year 2017/18, SIS Kassel offers a bilingual secondary school.

Our goal is to support and challenge our students every day. Our focus is on teaching academic contents based on the Hessian state curriculum supplemented with international curriculum components as well as curriculum elements specifically developed by SIS. At the same time we guide our students to grow into citizens who take on social responsibility. Respect, openness, tolerance, local insight and international mindedness play an important role in our school community.

Our two school languages German and English play an equal role in the course of the school day. The students are taught by native speakers who communicate in his or her mother tongue with the students in order to expose them to authentic learning situations. We consistently adopt the philosophy of “one person, one language” which creates an ideal environment for language acquisition.

Our Reception Programme is for students from five to seven years. The students learn in a playful way the contents of the primary school such as the alphabet and the numbers at least to 10 – of course in English and in German. After one or two years in our Reception Programme, the students move up to our Primary School.

Admission to SIS Kassel is possible at the beginning of the school year as well as at any other time throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

Kind regards,
Sebastian Koch, Principal
