LOCAL SCHOOL. INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION.
The German International School Sydney (GISS) provides a complete, multilingual education within a multicultural environment for students from Preschool to Year 12. Boasting manageable class sizes and forward-thinking teachers who are fully committed to helping students achieve the best results they can.
While there is a dedication to bilingual studies, all children are welcome, and it is not necessary to be familiar with the German language as the school focuses on an effective language immersion programme, leading to bilingual competency in both English and German.
The bilingual opportunities, International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program, and the European heritage of the school have continuously set the German International School Sydney apart as a unique schooling system, fostering an appreciation for international culture and recognition of the importance of language skills.
Catering to both English and German speaking students alike, linguistically talented students can fully immerse themselves in their second language and attain a high level of bilinguality. While other students may prefer to choose subjects mainly taught in their mother tongue but still learn a second or third language.
GISS holds regular Open Days, however, prospective families are welcome to contact the school directly to arrange private school tours and to discuss their child’s individual requirements.
The school also appreciates that considering a new school is a major family decision and as such to alleviate any concerns encourages school trial days.
From Kindergarten to Year 10, prospective pupils interested in joining the GISS community are able to participate in classroom activities and meet fellow students and teachers.
