Are you interested in applying for ISSR?

Here we give you instructions on who can apply and how to apply.

The procedure for admission is the same for the Middle and Primary Years Programme, but differs for the Diploma Programme.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Programme in 1968.

IB Authorization

Since 1999, ISSR has been authorized to offer the Diploma Programme. ISSR is also a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that ISSR believes is important for our students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
