Dear Parents, 

when we started the Stella Kindergarten in 2017, we could not have known that six years later there would still be a primary school and a secondary school – with a total of over 217 children and pupils. And almost “as if fallen from the sky”, the opportunity arose in 2022 to open an additional Stella campus in Seebenstein – in the meantime there are 35 kindergarten children and pupils there. A reason for gratitude for all of us.

A little more unspectacular, but no less beautiful, is that there are enough interested pupils to start a 5th grade secondary school from September 2023 – this school level had actually only been planned from 2025. In case you would like to register your child for this 5th grade, we have compiled all the information in this article.

If you would like to learn more about the Stella Secondary School as a whole, we would be happy to have you browse through our website. For example, I could imagine that you would be interested in our concept, or an article about our school life.

Yours sincerely

Heidi Burkhart
and the team of the Stella International School


Why is a 5th grade secondary school starting now?

After the successful launch of the kindergarten and primary school, Stella International School started a secondary school in autumn 2021.

Originally, it was planned that the current classes would move up further and further and thus gradually “fill in” all school levels of the secondary school – so the current second class will become the third class secondary school in autumn 2023. A 5th class would thus not have existed until 2025. Due to the great popularity and the interest of older siblings of the current pupils, the upper school will be opened with a 5th class in September 2023.

What distinguishes Stella International School?

Stella International School is a linguistic secondary school: English is offered as the first living foreign language from Year 1, Latin from Year 3, and Spanish or Russian as the second living foreign language from Year 5.

Furthermore, there is an English focus according to the CLIL method with additional English sequences per week in alternating subjects, as well as the pedagogical concept for personality development of Leader-in-Me (
