Founded in 2002, this outstanding school in Dusseldorf is a private, non-selective, co-educational, non-faith day school located in the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany.

The schools strive for excellence in everything they undertake and place heavy emphasis on creating a positive, enjoyable, and child-centered learning experience. The school is not only an important option for ex-pat families in the area, but also for those in the local community who seek an inspiring and enriching alternative to the German education system. The school community currently consists of approximately 700 pupils, aged from 2-18. Approximately half of these pupils come from the local German community, whereas the remaining half come from a broad spectrum of international backgrounds. There are currently over 50 nationalities represented in the school. This diverse nature of the school makes it a vibrant and exciting place to both work and learn.

Art is a compulsory part of the curriculum in Middle School, where pupils have the opportunity to work with varied media and develop techniques that enable them to express their ideas both imaginatively and precisely.
Art is a valuable part of our curriculum and a popular option at the examination level. It is a compulsory element of our middle school curriculum, and we offer art as an IGCSE subject in the upper school. Pupils follow the IB Visu-al Arts curriculum in the sixth form. Familiarity with these examination courses would be an advantage. A strong desire to contribute to the rich pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school is also desired.
