Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Situated in the heart of the Alps, International School Innsbruck is a culmination of a motivated community of initiators in the west of Austria. Today, as an IB World School, ISI looks forward to continuing the traditions of international education in Tirol.

Alongside the acquisition of a targeted higher-level English competency, students are educated using subject-specific English in the learning areas. Further selected subjects are also taught in English and supported by native-speaking staff. ISI's international focus also includes the fundamental importance of languages as a gateway to international open-mindedness, cultural awareness and a development of the individual striving for excellence in a globalised world.

Teaching approach of the school

ISI incorporates bilingual teaching utilising the principles of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) that requires a methodical emphasis based on modern non-native language- and subject-specific didactics. Parallel to targeted, content-specific language instruction, synergies through simultaneous learning of content delivered in two languages with positive feedback effects on the development of native language are utilised.
