Our Mission

GIS is a collaborative community with a student-centered learning environment that encourages growth into bilingual world citizens, who strive for academic and creative excellence, embrace healthy and responsible behavior, and value independence and lifelong learning.

Unser Leitbild

GIS ist eine Lerngemeinschaft, in der unsere Schüler im Mittelpunkt stehen. Hier wachsen Kinder in einer zweisprachigen und weltoffenen Umgebung auf und streben nach akademischer und kreativer Exzellenz, übernehmen Verantwortung für sich selbst und ihre Umgebung, und entfalten ihre Individualität und werden an  selbständiges, kooperatives und lebenslanges Lernen herangeführt.

Our Philosophy

GIS provides an excellent educational experience that fosters cross-cultural understanding, giving our children the tools and perspectives needed to actively participate as citizens in a global community. Our students develop and maintain fluency in both the German and English languages.

We believe that children’s natural curiosity of the world is the origin of learning and that we must respect each child’s level of readiness, ability, and curiosity as we promote learning.
