Thank you to US Triathlete and Olympic hopeful Tony Smoragiewicz who gave an inspiring talk to our athletics groups!
Events are a great part of school life, bringing together all members of the GISSV community, and giving us an opportunity to celebrate and engage in conversations.
Among our recurring annual public events are a German Holiday Market, where we transform Downtown Mountain View into a bustling “holiday village” for a day, or the Laternenfest (Lantern Festival) on our San Francisco Campus with on-campus entertainment and a lantern parade through the neighborhood.
Campus events for the GISSV community celebrate American as well as German holidays, sportsmanship (Walk-a-Thon, soccer matches with schools in the Bay Area), music (talent show, concerts), community (Summer Fest, Gala) and more.
The annual GISSV San Francisco Lantern Festival is a fun family event including German food & drinks and a lantern parade.
Thousands of people celebrate an authentic German Holiday Market with us annually. GISSV can proudly say it has established the cherished "Weihnachtsmarkt" tradition in the Bay Area.
