German Schools of Excellence

Deutsche Exzellenzschulen 德国优秀学校

The German International School is one of the eight North American German Schools Abroad (Boston, Brooklyn, Montreal, New York, Portland, Silicon Valley, Toronto and Washington DC) that is accredited by the Federal Republic of Germany’s Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA) and meets their rigorous accreditation standards. Our program also follows Oregon state standards and IB World School accreditation requirements.

As part of maintaining this accreditation, we test our students’ content skills in 3rd and 5th grade using the German-based VERA test. Third graders are tested in language and math and fifth graders are just tested in language.

The ZfA of the German Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion sup­ports over 1,200 schools world­wide main­ly in pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship. Most of these schools are in­ter­na­tion­al schools, and are open not on­ly to chil­dren of Ger­mans work­ing abroad, but those who want a Ger­man ed­u­ca­tion for their children. Three out of four students at these schools are from the re­spec­tive host coun­tries or oth­er cul­tures, giving students the chance to fa­mil­iar­ize them­selves with Ger­many, its cul­ture, and lan­guage.
