Welcome to the German International School Sydney

In 2014, the German International School Sydney (GISS) celebrated 25 years of providing a rounded, multilingual education within a multicultural environment for students from Preschool to Year 12.  We have manageable class sizes and forward thinking teachers who are fully committed to helping students achieve the best results they can.

Our bilingual opportunities, International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program, and European heritage have continuously set us apart as an extremely unique schooling system, fostering an appreciation for international culture and recognition of the importance of language skills. 

While we pride ourselves on our dedication to bilingual studies, all children are welcome and it is not necessary to be familiar with, or even speak German as we boast an effective language immersion programme, leading to bilingual competency in both English and German.

Since January 2015, we have now adopted the New South Wales school calendar year, providing greater subject choice and flexibility for our pupils, resulting in a balanced, blended curriculum which is fully compliant with both the NSW Board of Studies and the German authorities.  

Our goal is to engage, inspire and enable our students to live a fulfilled life in tomorrow’s modern and fast changing global society.

Schnuppern in German means sniffing / having a whiff /
getting a feel for our school.  

This is something we offer to students who haven’t decided yet if this is the right school for them. Students can come and sit in class for one or two days and experience our school’s atmosphere, get to know other students and meet teachers:

No obligation, no contract, no payment.

Simply call our friendly registrar Isabella Pitcher on (02) 9485 1900 or to organise a private school tour and arrange one or two Schnuppertage.
