Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to German International School Boston and thank you for your interest in our school!

When you browse through our website, you will meet a school that offers a fully bilingual education from preschool to grade 12. You will encounter an international and diverse community, and you will learn about a school that educates global citizens who are culturally aware and socially confident. We nurture curiosity and tolerance and encourage the exchange of ideas and mutual support. We follow an internationally highly acclaimed German curriculum and prepare our students thoroughly for a future in a global world.

Our school is about choices: Equipped with the German International Abitur and a U.S. High School Diploma, our graduates attend some of the best universities in Germany, Europe, and the United States. We offer a strong science and mathematics program and besides German and English, our students also have the choice between French and Spanish as a third language. Class sizes are intentionally small and students thrive in our supportive atmosphere of independence, trust, and high expectation. We are proud to be a certified “Exzellente Deutsche Auslandsschule”, an excellent German school abroad.

German International School Boston is part of a network of 135 officially recognized International German Schools worldwide. The network is a rich source of knowledge and best practices. It provides exchange opportunities for students and gives us access to German authors, artists, and scientists.

Maybe nothing in life is as important as the years we spent at school. At German International School Boston, we take this responsibility seriously and aim to inspire curiosity, imagination, resilience, and a lifelong love of learning in our students.

Enjoy the virtual journey through GISB – a journey full of choices and chances in a unique international environment.

Best wishes,

Holger Wirtz

Head of School
