Dedicated and forward thinking teachers provide holistic learning concepts aiming for every single student to achieve the best results they can. Students with no prior knowledge of the German language are welcome, as the school features a successful intensive language immersion programme leading to a high bilingual proficiency in both English and German.
From Kindergarten to Year 10 the School teaches a combined curriculum of both the New South Wales Syllabus and the German State Thüringen, following the NSW school calendar year.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) offered in Years 11 and 12 is a comprehensive tw0 year programme involving a curriculum model which is focused around six academic subject groups. The IBDP is recognized worldwide as the best university preparation programme currently available to students completing post-secondary education.
GISS holds regular Open Days, however, prospective families are welcome to contact the school directly to arrange private school tours and to discuss their child’s individual needs. Furthermore, from Kindergarten to Year 10, pupils interested in joining the GISS community are invited to participate in classroom activities for a couple of days to meet fellow students and teachers, by appointment.
