Located in Seeheim-Jugenheim (near Darmstadt), this is Hessen's first public international school. The primary and secondary schools represents a pilot project in Germany - a public school where the language of instruction is English. Opened in 2005, the SISS is located on the campus of the Europaschule Schuldorf Bergstraße and is part of this large German comprehensive school. It follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), incorporates intensive language programs in German and is designed to prepare students for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), as well as for either the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma, or the German Abitur. The school offers a full day care program (7:30 am - 6:00 pm), meals and extracurricular activities. Because the school is publicly owned, there is no tuition to pay, but rather a 300 euro monthly fee for after-school care. Currently, 350 children are enrolled (160 in primary and 180 in secondary), but with the completion of the new secondary building the school now has places for up to 600 students.
