Institution Description
AMADEUS International School Vienna is a new international boarding school that delivers the finest academic school programme based on the IB MYP/DP. Our school is located in the beautiful 18th district of Vienna in a gated community with wooded parks, fountains and exquisite fin de siècle architecture. Our graduates will have profound knowledge and understanding of all the academic areas as prescribed by the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (e.g., Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts, Humanities, Information & Communications Technology, Global Languages, Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Action and Service, etc.). They will be well prepared for entrance into the finest colleges, universities and conservatories throughout the world, pursuing a successful career in music or any other profession of their choice. Our modern, purpose-built boarding facilities are available for students from around the world.

One key element of character development is the school’s focus on the five core values of respect, integrity, good deeds, hard work and team spirit. Through active participation in a multicultural, international school community in Vienna, Austria, students contribute meaningfully to their local, national, and global communities. Talented and caring faculty and staff cultivate in each student the joy of learning, self-confidence, positive self-esteem, and the individual contributions that each student makes. By living and learning in an atmosphere of integrity and respect, students come to expect the best of themselves and others.

The dual path academic curriculum in English is based on the high honors-level International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as well as the standard-level High School Diploma Programme. The progressive curriculum is inquiry-based and focuses on skill building, collaboration, problem-solving and critical thinking. To help make the curriculum relevant for students the programme has a focus on five core competencies: worldview, emotional intelligence, academics in balance, creativity and technology. The school utilizes the latest advancements in educational technology, including 1 to 1 computing throughout the entire program as well as digital primary source texts for ease of portability, searchable functions, editing, appending and content creation by the students. It is anticipated that we will have meaningful collaboration with the other schools in the Nobel Education Network to enrich the student’s academic and co-curricula experiences in Vienna and beyond.

The after school Music Academy programme is based on vocal and instrumental training with some of the most prestigous teachers in Vienna, including members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and The Vienna Boys Choir. Ballet is also offered and the school will have ballet performance with orchestra in the near future. Master classes in voice, instrumental music and ballet are offered throughout the year as well.
