‘The future belongs to those who have learned to move within the globalised world confidently and effortlessly, who know their own culture and are open to others.’ This can be seen as one of the main missions of the Cologne International School, which provides an excellent bilingual education whilst also staying connected to the local community. The Cologne International School was founded in 2007 with the aim of being a completely inclusive bilingual school, open to all cultures, religions and ethnicities. The school makes sure that everyone’s personal background is catered for in every aspect and that the students can simply focus on their education. In German the school is called Internationale Friedensschule Köln, which translates as peace school.
