Our Bookstore

The bookstore provides the schoolbooks from Germany and the U.S. We also take used books into commission upon which they are available for purchase at the bookstore.

In February, the book and supply lists for the academic year become available on the website. Books and supplies can then be ordered. Families make appointments online to pick up books after the books have arrived from Germany.  Please pay in US$, we accept all major credit cards as well as cash and US checks.

We always order extra copies for new students who arrive at GISW after the book order deadline and/or during the school year. However, parents of new students should contact us as early as possible to make sure books are available on time.

School supplies from Germany are also available in our bookstore, as well as a large selection of merchandise with the school logo or visit our online store under

Hours of Operation: Due to Covid 19 regulations, our school buildings are not accessible to parents at this time. To come to the bookstore, we kindly ask that you make an appointment through this link:
