International exchange

Here, learning goes beyond national borders. Our international partnerships bring cultures together and create unique educational projects. Student exchanges create unforgettable moments, while pen friendships create connections that last a lifetime.

Worldwide partnerships

SIS Cairo West

In the fascinating metropolis of Cairo, we proudly present our partner school, SIS Cairo West. It is the first SIS school abroad and teaches according to the same system as our SIS schools in Germany. Here we not only organize exciting student exchanges and trips, but also an inspiring collaboration between our employees. Our partnership goes beyond the classroom and creates space for an interdisciplinary exchange of experiences.

BCCIS in Cairo

Together with our partner school "British Columbia Canadian International School" in Cairo, we have been running a cross-SIS student exchange program since 2017. Students from grade 7 onwards can take part. In addition to intensive language learning at a host school and with a host family, there are many good reasons for this educational student exchange. The experience of living with a host family enables a deep immersion into a foreign culture, accompanied by the opportunity to make new friends and get to know the country's traditions and festivals at first hand. At the same time, it offers the chance to reflect on one's own identity and origins and to question personal values. The challenges of integration into an international school system and integration into an age-specific class group - for example at the International Canadian School - round off this enriching experience.

German European School Manila

Together with our partner school "German European School Manila" in Manila, we organize student exchanges at regular intervals. Pupils from all SIS schools can take part. We also support various projects in Manila. Among other things, the social project "Well Construction" was supported by Mr. Christoph Grandt (GESM) with monetary donations.

Sandhurst School London

Together with Sandhurst, the IOM launched the project "VR in the classroom - a London expedition" via Erasmus+. The project was planned together with two teachers from each school and got off to an excellent start with the help of a number of training courses, e.g. via Google Expeditions and Etwinning.

Partner school Strakonice

Together with our partner school Základni škola Provážská in Strakonice, Czech Republic, we have been running a student exchange program since 2015. Pupils from year 7 onwards can take part. The project aims to support and develop pupils' intercultural and multilingual skills. The language of communication during the exchange is English. In addition, this student exchange promotes social skills such as openness, tolerance, respect for differences, teamwork and flexibility. Awareness of other cultures is also (further) developed.

Partner school in Hungary

Since the 2015/2016 school year, our International Secondary School Neukirchen has been involved in an exciting student exchange with Tamasi Grammar School in Hungary. Pupils from Year 7 onwards have the opportunity to take part. The aim of the project is to support and develop the intercultural and multilingual skills of the pupils. During the exchange, the pupils get to know the geographical, historical and cultural details of the host region Tamasi. The exchange offers numerous interesting activities, including a guided tour of the city of Tamasi, an excursion to Budapest and a trip to Lake Balaton in Siofok. The students also have the opportunity to experience the culture and life in Hungary at first hand. This includes joint activities such as making pancakes with the host families, demonstrations of Hungarian folk dances in authentic costumes and visits to typical weekly markets. This exchange gives the students an enriching intercultural experience and a deeper understanding of Hungary.

Partner school Kutno

As part of the partnership between the district of Leipzig and the Polish district of Kutno, a school partnership was established between the International Grammar School in Geithain and the grammar school in Kutno. Together with the partner school, we organize a student exchange every school year. The focus is on intercultural exchange, getting to know each other and the language education of the pupils. During the exchange week, the students always live with host families. Both Saxons and Poles have always enjoyed the great hospitality of the host families. This exchange is supported by the German-Polish Youth Office.

Partner school Veitshöchheim

As part of the town twinning between the town of Geithain and the town of Veitshöchheim in Lower Franconia, the grammar schools in both towns have also decided to cooperate with each other and enter into a mutually beneficial exchange. Every month, pupils from both schools can solve a tricky puzzle and take part in the school's internal "Problem of the Month" competition.
