The Innsbruck Elementary School is an enthusiastic, life-long learning community that is committed to supporting students of local and international backgrounds in a public school setting.
High expectations of teachers as well as students ensure a profound high-quality of education in English, while fostering self-confidence, self-discipline and self-worth in every student enables them to reach their full potential in school and beyond.
Our unique learning environment is characterized by the close student, teacher, and family relationships that develop over a four year course of study in a small school environment.
At Innsbruck Elementary we understand that communication is an important key to our strong sense of community that is based upon the values of mutual respect, sincere compassion, shared responsibility and continual self-reflection.
„Die Innsbruck Elementary School stellt eine wertvolle Bereicherung für die Innsbrucker Schullandschaft dar und bringt eine Aufwertung für den Wirtschaftsstandort Tirol. Als Bildungslandesrätin freue ich mich sehr, dass das Angebot einer englischsprachigen Volksschule so gut angenommen wird und sich bereits eine sehr lebendige Schulgemeinschaft entwickeln konnte. Ich danke Frau Direktorin Gerlinde Prazeller und ihrem kompetenten LehrerInnenteam für das große Engagement und wünsche allen Schülerinnen und Schülern viel Freude beim Lernen!”
Dr. Beate Palfrader, Landesrätin für Bildung und Kultur
