Our Team, Our Opening Hours and How to Reach Us

Greeting from the Principal

Dear parents

Each school day brings new experiences that give students a new opportunity to steadily develop personally and academically, spark their curiosity, form friendships and acquire knowledge. I am delighted that you are interested in SIS Regensburg and I would like to invite you to get to know our special school community.

At SIS Regensburg, it is most important to us to accompany the children and students – starting from kindergarten through primary school to graduation in the Gymnasium – on their journey through life.

Our school values of honesty, appreciation, commitment to action and personal responsibility are lived by our school community on a daily basis. Mutual respect and commitment play an important role. Thanks to our international school family, we have the opportunity every day to learn a lot from and about each other and thus also about our different cultural backgrounds. Our students demonstrate the motto "School against Racism" every day.

I would be happy to make an appointment with you to give you an understanding of our kindergarten or our school in a personal conversation and to answer any questions you may have.

Yours
Danette Brink
