Willkommen, welcome, bienvenu, salve, bienvenidos, welkom … These are some of the languages spoken at the GESS. Languages with which we get to know each other, with which our students acquire knowledge and skills as well as the attitude needed to grow in independence and tolerance and become responsible citizens. This applies to children of all nationalities at our school aged from 18 months to 18 years.
Established in 1971, our German Section offers all German school leaving certificates, following an accredited German school curriculum. As one of the first “Excellent German Schools Abroad”, we are proud that our students sitting the year 10 exams (Mittlere Reife) and the grade 12 exam (Abitur) regularly achieve above average results and are able to reintegrate into the German system smoothly and successfully upon their return.
In our European Section students are educated in English following the three International Baccalaureate Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP). Graduates from our IB diploma programme constantly score above average and are being considered by the best universities around the world for their tertiary education. Recently, GESS’ European Section has become an accredited member of the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS).
