Schooling in Duesseldorf

Dear all,

our family is moving from Sydney to Duesseldorf in July. Whilst we have been pretty organised with most things, we are still struggling with the decision on where to send our children (4 and 7) to school. The options are International School Duesseldorf and St Georges. I have not had a chance to see any of the schools in person but my husband has and prefers the vibe of St Georges. I am preferring ISD due to slightly better location (we will live in Angermund but I am planning to work as soon as the children have settled in, so a school towards the city is probably easier to manage logistically). I am also concerned about St Georges only being an "Ergaenzungsschule"...

Does anyone have experiences with either of the schools?
Plus, are there any other professional couples with children here - how do you juggle work- and schooldays? Do you use an after school nanny?

Thanks so much! Nina
