Welcome to the

German International School Sydney

Our vision is to enable your child to live a fulfilled life in tomorrow’s modern and fast changing global society. Our 360 students from Preschool to Year 12 are part of a truly multicultural community, with about half of them coming from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many other countries and half from local Australian families. Therefore, we truly live our mission to offer the highest quality co-education in a bi-lingual and multi-cultural environment.

The focus of our curriculum – which combines the New South Wales Syllabus and the one of the German State Thüringen while following the NSW school calendar year – are languages, math and the sciences. Students can be enrolled without prior knowledge of either the German or English language. Our content and language integrated learning methods allows all students to be taught according to their language skill set. Our immersion approach also leads to a high bilingual proficiency in both languages.

In Years 11 and 12 we offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) which is recognized worldwide as the best university preparation programme currently available to students completing post-secondary education. I am proud to say that in recent years our IB students continuously achieved IB scores above world average.

Furthermore, our highly qualified and dedicated team of teachers guide and support every student to develop their full academic potential and to become competent, responsible and independent adults. To find out more about our unique learning environment, visit us on one of our regular Open Days. Alternatively, please feel free to arrange a private school tour anytime – call 02 9485 1900 - to discuss your child’s individual requirements.  

With best wishes,

Erhard Seifert
