We continued through elementary and middle school because of the small class sizes and passionate teachers during these critical learning years. Plus, music, art and gym are still part of the curriculum for every student. We are staying through high school for the approach to science and mathematics that makes it possible for even average students to understand and be successful at advanced topics. The unexpected bonus is that our American children will have access to German universities at a fraction of US university prices. GISSV is the best school for this American family.
