Grades 5-12

Dear parents,

Thank you for visiting the pages of grades 5-12. Please take a few minutes to look into our program.

Grades 5-12 consist of three sections that cooperate closely.

At the orientation level (Orientierungsstufe) we accept students into grade 5; at the middle school level (Mittelstufe) we instruct and educate students in grades 6 through 9. At the upper level (Oberstufe) we lead the students in grades 10, 11 and 12 towards the Abitur and the U.S. High School Diploma.

Classes are structured in accordance with the currently effective GISW curriculum.

Grades 5-12 offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities as well as exchange and counseling programs.

Our counselor Ms. Fabina is available to help our students with any issues during the entire school day. She also assists them with college and job applications, translations of transcripts, preparations for PSAT, SAT and AP-examinations and much more.

If you are interested in our school, we invite you to make an appointment with the Admissions & Outreach Coordinator at and visit us for a tour. We will be happy to show you around and to introduce you to our competent team.

A. Linnenbrink
Coordinator for grades 5-9
