Welcome to the website of the German International School Sydney
Here you can find information about all of our co-educational programs, from Preschool up to Year 12.
Since its foundation in 1989 our school has developed into a truly international school which is open to students of all nationalities and leads to the IB Diploma.
Our students are taught in accordance with Australian, German and European educational and cultural values – preparing them for the challenges of an ever-changing global society.
We are proud of our achievements and believe the results speak for themselves.
Our 2013 IB diploma class achieved a 100% pass rate and scored a remarkable average of 35.6 points (equating to an average ATAR score of 94.3). We teach the IB diploma in English, French or Spanish as part of our emphasis on a bilingual co-education in a multicultural environment
Apart from significant cognitive benefits, the bilingual education offered at our school enables the students to express themselves with high proficiency not only in everyday conversation but also on an academic level.
Our intensive DaZ (German as a second language) programme offers children from Preschool right up to Year 3 the opportunity to learn German to a level which enables them to follow the German Curriculum with German as its primary language. Our Secondary School offers two streams from Year 7 with either German or English as the main language of instruction. These grow increasingly intertwined as they progress and eventually combine in the International Baccalaureate Programme in Years 11 and 12. This qualification can provide students with the opportunity to study at the best universities around the globe.
Our highly qualified team of teachers guide and support every student to develop their full academic potential and to become competent, responsible and independent adults.
