School Notes

  • •  Children do not need to speak or understand German for admission to our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs.  •  Applicants to our Lower School (grades 1 – 4) must demonstrate a basic understanding of German such that they are comfortable participating in classroom activities and homework assignments in German.  And while you do not need to speak German at home, those children who have opportunities to converse and read in German outside of school have an overall easier time achieving fluency and literacy.  •  Applicants to our Middle and Upper Schools must be fluent and literate in German.   •  English fluency is not required at any grade level.
