Embark on a voyage of learning


"Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one" - Malcolm Forbes


Welcome back!

The ISH Alumni network is currently comprised of more than 600 ISH alumni around the globe.

We encourage alumni to remain connected with the School today by sharing old stories and pictures in the Facebook Alumni group or by organising bi-annual events and reunions. With a perspective of the past, and an appreciation for the future, alumni inspire our students, faculty and each other.

Here are a few options:

Alumni Registration

Please use our Registration Form so we can update and complete our records and get in touch with you directly when we need to.

ISH Alumni on Social Media

  • Facebook:
    If you want to go into detail and really stay informed about what’s going on at ISH, follow our official FB Page. Please also consider joining our bustling FB Alumni Group to reconnect with your former schoolmates.
  • Google+:
    Needless to say, ISH also has a Google+ page. You can still be among the first in our circles.
  • LinkedIn:
    We have 3 very active presences here: A Company Page, a University Page, and an Alumni Group. If you want to follow us on LinkedIn we recommend you use the University Page since it possesses special alumni features. We also very much recommend the Alumni Group, which already boasts several hundred members and counting.
  • Xing:
    On this German equivalent of LinkedIn you will find a Company Page and an Alumni Group. Alas due to resource constraints we won’t be able to give them much attention, though.
  • Youtube:
    ISH has its own Youtube Channel, which could always use a few additional subscribers. It’s the place to go for entertaining and insightful videos.

Giving and Supporting ISH

Ensuring the highest standard of education for our students means continually innovating and improving our academic and extra-curricular offerings – and the spaces in which that teaching and learning takes place. Please join others in making a gift or in volunteering to support our students today – and into the future. Contact alumni@ishamburg.org

Alumni Voices

Prior to the 60th Anniversary, we asked our alumni to share their best memories of ISH and how our school has impacted their life. Here is what ten of our former students had to share, enjoy!
