Programme and Structure

The International School of Hamburg offers and international education for students aged 3 to 18.

While the Early Childhood Centre and Junior School use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) , Secondary School (grades 6 to 12) is accredited to use the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) and our new Career-related Programme.

It may be especially challenging for parents who are transitioning their kids from national education systems to an international school like ISH to get used to the new academic structure at first.

The charts below give a general guide for placement equivalencies.  Individual class placements are determined by the ISH Administration on a case-by-case basis and according to admissions policies.
