Preschool-12 Bilingual Education in
Two Locations in the Bay Area

Our Curriculum

All GISSV programs are bilingual German/English and based on the German curriculum of the state of Thuringia, which is known and respected for its well-balanced educational approach, fostering interests across all academic disciplines as well as social-emotional competency, critical thinking, artistic expression and physical motor skills.

Our curricula for English, American History and Economics are based on the Common Core Standards. We feature a strong science program and are a recognized MINT (the German equivalent to STEM) school. Specialty classes such as sports, music, art, as well as third and fourth languages, all taught by professionally credentialed specialists, are an integral part of the day at GISSV. Our curriculum is supported and enhanced by comprehensive science and technology resources, such as SMART boards, iPads, laptops and supplies for hands-on science experiments. The shared curriculum approach of all GISSV programs enables a smooth transition between all grade levels for our students.
