The East Bay German International School (EBGIS) is a dual-language German/English immersion school offering preschool through eighth grade programs. We offer exceptional academics, a diverse international perspective, and a vibrant school community.
Our program is based on proven German curricula noted for their success in developing students’ strengths across academic disciplines, as well as critical thinking skills, social-emotional competencies, artistic expression, and motor skills. This is combined with project-based, literature-rich English language instruction in every grade.
We emphasize critical thinking and competencies over rigid content requirements or teaching to any tests. Our project-based curriculum encourages students at every age to use their minds, hearts, and hands to think for themselves while learning in cooperation with others. By supporting each student’s uniqueness and autonomy as a learner, we prepare our students to meet the challenges of high school, university, and their broader pursuits in the world.
No prior knowledge of German is needed for our Preschool and Kindergarten programs. Students need not be fluent in German to join our Elementary and Middle Schools. Talk to us about individualized language support and visit our website for more information.
