The International School of Debrecen (ISD) is in its fourth year, and some partners might still wonder how it differs from a Hungarian state school. 

ISD is different in that the teachers seek answers to real-life questions with the students. From preschool to graduation, the skills are developed according to the age of the child so that the expectations listed become natural and familiar tasks for young people. The curriculum and instructors guide students to focus on areas they are good at while discovering their strengths. They are made aware that they are learning for themselves and responsible for their own development. 

International School of Debrecen has become a member of the International Baccalaureate World Schools; it was announced in May 2022.

Tom McLean, Director of the International School of Debrecen (ISD), said at the press conference that ISD had become the newest member of an ever-growing global community of over 5,000 schools offering the International Baccalaureate in more than 150 different countries.

IB World School status is a globally recognized indicator of educational excellence. IB schools attract the most skilled teachers from around the world. The ISD faculty comprises more than ten nationalities who have worked at high-performing schools. Confirming ISD’s IB World School status allows the institution to strengthen its faculty further and support student learning.  

“The accreditation is a huge milestone for the school. It shows that the International School of Debrecen is on the right track,” said Deputy Mayor of Debrecen Lajos Barcsa.

Parents who decide that this is the right school for their child can ask their questions and take part in an exploratory game for kindergarten children and a joint presentation lesson for lower school students at the ISD Open Day on 21 January 2023.
