German Schools Abroad


International Network

The German International School Sydney is part of a network of more than 140 German Schools Abroad that are sponsored by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA) on behalf of the German Federal Foreign Office. 

From Kuala Lumpur to Kiev and Toronto to Tokyo German Schools Abroad place particular emphasis on individual development, multilingualism and intercultural exchange. 

With the support of the Federal Republic of Germany and excellent teachers, students of German Schools Abroad receive a first-class education and obtain German as well as local qualifications. 

It is the German language and culture, education, as well as encounters and exchanges that form the cornerstones of German Schools Abroad. Visit
