Open a world of opportunities for your child with a distinctive bilingual education and a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes the sciences.
For over 40 years, German International School New York, an independent Pre-K through Grade 12 college preparatory program, has cultivated students to develop into curious, analytical, and conscientious global citizens.
Pre-K and Kindergarten children are welcomed into a bright, spacious, and nurturing environment, and with our Nature-Based Early Childhood Education Program our students enjoy most of their school day outdoors exploring, learning, and playing on our beautiful 20-acre campus.
Our Pre-K & Kindergarten programs incorporate the “One teacher – one language” approach. One teacher only speaks German, and the second teacher only speaks English to the children.
Entering Pre-K and Kindergarten children are not required to speak or understand German and build the foundation of being bilingual by first grade.
GISNY is the only school in the tristate area accredited to offer the NYS High School Diploma and the German International Abitur, a globally recognized diploma, which facilitates access to universities worldwide.
The latest addition to our campus is a brand-new, state-of-the-art Makerspace, which allows students of all grades to fully explore projects in the fields of design thinking, life sciences, and artificial intelligence.
