Strategic Approach


“At the International School Kufstein Tirol, we strive to support our students’ development into informed, active and responsible citizens of the world.” (Extract from the Mission Statement)

In our teaching and learning program we focus on our mission statement as well as on the innovative “learner Profile” of the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization).

ISK Tirol is a private denominational school under the terms of the Austrian law. Additionally, ISK Tirol is a recognized "IB World School" since April 06, 2017 and therefore part of an international community with over 5.200 IB-schools with IB-accreditation in around 150 countries (refer to

High quality, international education in a gymnasial upper secondary School

ISK Tirol started its education programme in 2015/16 as an “Oberstufenrealgymnasium” (upper secondary gymnasial school), where students are educated based on the Austrian national curriculum. After four years of study at the ISK Tirol, students graduate with the Austrian Zentralmatura and with the internationally standardized and externally assessed IB Diploma. This enables students to study afterwards at Austrian, European and international universities. 

"Finger on the pulse" curriculum for students starting from the age of 10 

Due to an increasing need and demand in society and economy, the international education program at the ISK Tirol will be extended starting from the academic year 2021/2022. In addition to the already existing upper secondary school, students will then also be able to start at the education campus at the age of 10 in a modern educational lower secondary school program.

Motivated young students receive individual support and special talent promotion, regardless of their social or religious background, on a campus with a very modern learning environment.
