GISSV's K-8 Campus in San Francisco (Presidio)

After significant interest and support from parents in the City, GISSV has opened a bilingual German/English K-8 campus in San Francisco. GISSV's San Francisco Campus is located in the Presidio and officially opened in August 2011. This campus features a Kindergarten class, with one grade being added per year to establish a full K-8 program.

We welcome both German and non-German speaking families, as well as anyone interested in a high quality bilingual education.

For questions regarding admissions or any other matter, please contact our campus via email at or at 650-254-0748.
