Vision and Core Values - ICIGSS


ICIGSS helps students to realise their individual potential and become creative and confident participants in the global community, we are on a mission to raise thousands of new generational leaders and professionals in the next few years up to University level at the German Government tuition free Universities. New resourceful leaders with the right mind-set and the fear of God are needed to sustain the future. We catch and build our students with the fear of God and the modern technology needed to foster a good education from Kindergartens to University level.



  • We inspire life-long learning by empowering students to lead their own learning journey.
  • We inspire our students by offering learning experiences encompassing the heart, head and hands.
  • We inspire our students to express themselves creatively and think critically about a world without borders.


  • We nurture the whole child in our vibrant German Swiss and multicultural community.
  • We nurture inclusive classrooms in which everyone feels pride and belonging.
  • We nurture mutual respect, understanding and caring for the individual.


  • We challenge our students to embrace diverse perspectives through bilingualism and by exposing them to an immersion program run by native speakers.
  • We challenge our students academically by teaching according to the German and the Bavarian Curricula.
  • We challenge our community to live sustainably by reducing its footprint and taking care of precious resources. 


Together we create and shape everyday school life within our small but strong international community. We value respect, trust, kindness, honesty and patience. Students and parents alike enjoy participating in a variety of school events that foster multiculturalism and life-long friendships.

Our school environment assists children to grow into balanced and confident individuals who are able to take responsibility for themselves and others. Being able to communicate in two mother tongues enables them to perceive the world from a range of cultural perspectives. It assists them in developing a global view on life and appreciating cultural diversity.

This is fostered by the school being an integral part of both local and German-speaking communities. With its strong sense of community among the students’ families and its cultural activities inviting the wider community to take part in the school’s life, ICIGSS is more than an educational institution. Ultimately, the school provides students with the environment to live and learn two cultures.

The bilingual and bicultural education of children at ICIGSS is delivered through the school’s immersion program and reflects the philosophy of the school.
