Curious to learn more about what sets the German International School Washington apart? Interested in learning how our German curriculum, combined with an international perspective, can provide your child with an amazing education and tools for the future?

GISW is the only independent day school in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area, where graduates earn the Maryland High School Diploma and the sought-after German International Abitur, a globally recognized diploma, which enables students to access universities around the globe. During our Virtual Open House you will learn from our administrative and educational team about our innovative Elementary School program and together we will explore the advantages of a bilingual education and what it means for you and your little learners. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear stories and experiences from current parents and pose questions to the panel.

We’d love to welcome you! Sign up today. German language skills NOT required for School Entry Level admission.
