“GISB made me much more open-minded. Without this experience, the whole world would be significantly smaller for me.” — Josephine, class of 2019. German International School Boston (GISB) is a bilingual independent school serving students from age 3 to grade 12. In bilingual, cross-grade classrooms, dedicated teachers address each learner’s unique needs. Their intensive Fast Track program welcomes students entering grades 1–5 who have little to no previous German language skills and prepares them to participate in GISB’s regular curriculum within one year.

GISB graduates achieve native-level profi ciency in German and English, advanced math and science education, a high school diploma, and the German International Abitur, a prestigious and internationally recognized honors-level diploma. German International School Boston looks forward to welcoming you at an open house!

Teaching Philosophy

Thanks to rigorous accreditation by the German government and our location in the heart of Boston, GISB balances the strengths of US progressive education and Germany's democratic public schools. Teachers partner with students and their families to nurture open-ended and critical thinking and a life-long love of learning. Small class sizes and multi-grade classrooms allow teachers to tailor material to students' unique strengths and needs. Your child will teach and learn from others, play outside, and practice cross-cultural communication every day.
