Welcome to the International School Rheintal (ISR)! We are the leading IB World School in the Rheintal region catering for ages 3-19 years. We strive to meet the needs of each and every student through a personalised education and individual support to reach their potential.
ISR has a 100% pass rate in the IB Diploma and scores constantly above the world average. While academic excellence plays an important role at ISR, the development of the child as a whole to become a responsible and engaged global citizen is at the centre of all we do.
Individual academic support, one-on-one EAL classes, school and career counselling and our welcoming, international community are strong features of our school.
We encourage students to take their learning beyond the classroom through programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and the Model United Nations.
Where We Are
Situated in the heart of the Rheintal, a beautiful part of Eastern Switzerland, we are surrounded by mountains and the Rhein with glorious views whilst being easily accessible by public transport or by car. Our ISR school bus conveniently connects the town of St. Gallen with the school. The nature surrounding us invites us to participate in diverse outdoor activities and is an integral part of our daily teaching and learning.
New School Campus
In summer 2023, ISR will move to a modern, ecologically-sustainable school campus near our current location. The new campus is specifically designed for ISR's learning and teaching needs, with phased learning zones, versatile classrooms, science labs, specialist art and design studios, outdoor learning, and lunch zones, a 1000m2 green roof terrace and much more.
