Congratulations and kudos to our graduates for navigating the challenges of the past two school years and their exceptional accomplishments!
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.
We are excited to announce that GISSV is project partner in the network Schule der Vielfalt!
This week our San Francisco 8th graders graduate from GISSV. Congratulations and all the best!
