About us

A high-quality education is a basic need and right of every human being, and it is a key investment in our future. In Debrecen, we are proud of our long history and deep traditions of providing quality education at all levels.

To build upon this tradition and to rise to the challenge of a rapidly changing world, the Municipality of Debrecen has committed to open an international school in September 2019. The school will meet the highest standards internationally, comprising a globally accepted system of education that offers education from kindergarten to high school in the English language.

The International School of Debrecen (ISD) will provide both foreign and Hungarian students with the education of the 21st century in a modern and professional environment while maintaining a close relationship with the local and regional communities.

The students from 3-18 years will learn from a broad and balanced curriculum to gain the essential knowledge and skills that provide a foundation for a successful future in higher education and beyond. Municipality of Debrecen considers the school as being one of the key factors to attract high value-added foreign direct investment (FDI) and facilitate economic development in the region.

The highly-experienced team of the International Education Centre of Debrecen Nonprofit Kft. (DENOK) is responsible for the implementation of this project.
