Parent's Review of Heidelberg International School in Heidelberg, Germany

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Heidelberg International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Heidelberg

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

K- 10

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

mostly carpool, some train, walk

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Charming villa with temporary buildings until the new complex is built.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Nothing. Many parents have reported a great deal of "catching up" is needed when repatriating. These are parents from England, India, Singapore and the US.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Great community among parents but little interaction between parents and staff is encouraged. There is a strong sense of "us versus them" instead of a concept of parent + educators.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Consider alternative schools in the region. The administration is focused on building a business and a concept not focused on providing a positive learning environment with an an emphasis on academics. Everyone on staff is "nice" but not necessarily qualified. This school is *not* accredited nor bound to any set of standards.

This review is outdated. The school is now K-12. The facilities are in a beautiful, purpose-built building. The school is authorized to run the programmes of the International Baccalaureate and has since acquired other accreditations. It is worth checking out yourself.
