According to the Forbes Magazine, the International School of Debrecen (ISD) is one of the most important and unique developments of the city. ISD will not only be a multinational institution, but it will also function as a global and effective pedagogical model. According to the school’s director János Öreg, one of the most current issues regarding education is the following: what should be taught in this rapidly changing world?
The school endeavors to train balanced, well-prepared, motivated young adults, who are internationally minded, open, creative, emotionally intelligent, and who can work in team and accept other people’s opinions. Besides skills development, the prior aim of ISD is to promote problem-solving competences.
The pedagogical and philosophical conceps are reflected by the building itself. The circle symbolizes both the Earth and the concept of globality and cohesion. The ‘flexible places’ provide children with peaceful and comfortable circumstances both while working individually or in team.
