60 Years GISW

We are excited to start off the 2021/22 school year by celebrating 60 years since the founding of GISW.

In commemoration of this important milestone, we are planning an entertaining four-month celebration to reflect on our school’s rich history here in the nation’s capital. We plan to gather our extended GISW community (spanning 6 decades) in celebration of 60 years of friendship and connection.  We welcome all former, current, and future GISW students, families, teachers, staff, neighbors, and friends to join us at one or more of the following 60th anniversary events being planned for the fall:


To lay a strong foundation for our school’s next 10 years (and beyond), our 60th anniversary celebrations will be centered around two themes: community building and alumni engagement.  We invite you to contribute your creative ideas and help us plan for these celebratory events by volunteering for one of our 60th anniversary committees. If you are interested in serving on a committee or in assisting us with alumni outreach, please reach out to our Advancement Director, Jennifer Precht at


The German International School Washington D.C. stays in touch with its alumni around the globe and is very proud of their achievements.
