Strothoff International School: A first-rate education near Frankfurt


Strothoff International School is a private all-day school with a project-based approach to learning. It has given itself a distinguished reputation in the Frankfurt region for being the only school to offer the complete International Baccalaureate as a continuum from Kindergarten to the Diploma Programme. Only nine kilometres away from Frankfurt city centre, the school runs a shuttle bus fleet servicing students living as far as 50 kilometres away.

More than a school - become part of the family! 

Learn and grow from kindergarten to IB at Strothoff International School

Strothoff is proud to highlight that they are the smallest international school in the Rhine-Main area because this makes them different from the other big schools. They see themselves not just as a school but something more like a family. 

With an enrolment of around 370 students, they make sure that no student gets lost and is guided and supported individually. They are a very close community, and this gives their students the room to grow and develop.

Multiple languages

Aside from Kindergarten, English is the first language of instruction in all grades, but German is also taught to all students, either as a mother tongue course or as a language acquisition course at one of six different levels. 

English Learning Support (ELS) and German Learning Support (GLS) help students develop and consolidate successful language proficiency. French and Spanish are also available, among opportunities to engage in self-taught literature courses in multiple other languages. A variety of technology tools are used regularly with all ages.
