I would like to welcome you to Danube International School Vienna on behalf of our wonderful team of staff, students and parents.  Danube International School Vienna is a special and exciting place to be. Located in the heart of Vienna, close to the Prater Park we offer an ideal location for students to learn and grow.  Our goal is to engage learners from a young age to be problem solvers, inquirers and risk takers.  We do this by providing opportunities for all students to challenge themselves in an environment where learning is student-centred and each individual is celebrated for their effort and achievements.

We are a leading IB World School offering the International Baccalaureate, Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP) for students from 3-19. Here at Danube International School Vienna we place the student at the centre of all we do to enable them to become lifelong learners. We achieve this through our school culture, which is rooted in the IB Mission statement, which states: The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The school accommodates students from Early Years/Kita, 3 years old, to DP 18 years old. We accommodate them in a facilitated student centred learning environment, where we equip each child to succeed. Our excellent IB Diploma results are now a five year 100% pass rate with an impressive five year average of 34.5. Our highest earned score was a perfect 45 points. 

We are now home to over 500 students coming from over 55 countries. We embrace our diversity and celebrate our uniqueness as we strive for excellence. We have a highly qualified and experienced staff representing a variety of nationalities and cultures, all well versed in teaching a diverse student body.  A culture of experiential and problem-based learning permeates the classroom, as students make meaning from their discoveries. 

At Danube International School Vienna, we have a supportive and caring culture that encourages students to work together and inspire those around them. We feel it is our responsibility to nurture and guide each individual in a healthy and loving community to strive for personal best.The school's warm and friendly family atmosphere is grounded in respect, trust, compassion and the ideal of service.  We hope to raise children to be adults that exhibit empathy and, in so doing, make a difference for others.

In addition to high academic standards, the international education that we offer focuses on four core components of emotional intelligence, cultural understanding, communication and collaboration. We aim to develop students to be independent learners and leaders in the global community. We provide a wide range of activities and experiences that will not only prepare our children for the future, but also make their school and personal life more enjoyable and rewarding. Focusing on the principles of ‘Engagement, Excellence, Excitement, Ethics and Empathy’, DISV is passionate about fulfilling its demanding vision to be a world leader in international education.

Danube International School Vienna is a special and exciting place to be and I look forward to welcoming you to our school community very soon.
