School Notes

  • We follow a Mixed Academic Model (50% of instruction in English, 50% of instruction in German), cultivating best practices from both German and American approaches. Our approach focuses on independence, exploration, reasoning and creative problem-solving in the classroom, with the goal of instilling a lifelong passion and aptitude for learning within every child. Our students work toward the bilingual International Baccalaureate Diploma in Grades 11 and 12, a highly respected diploma recognized around the world. GSB accepts non-German speakers and fluent German speakers. If applying at the 3rd grade level or higher, students must be performing very well academically at their current school in order to be accepted to GSB. Part of the admissions process is a review of current report cards and an interview with a member of our educational leadership team.

German School Brooklyn has been my home for many years. I attended this school from second to eighth grade and have only great things to say about my experience. The academic programs at GSB are beyond grade level with a curriculum that will set you up for success. A very engaged, dedicated faculty is a unique quality of this school, as it creates an effective learning environment. Though GSB is a smaller school, it allows teachers to give students individualized attention, giving children more confidence when asking questions, engaging in group activities, and opportunities for one-on-one time with the teachers. The brand new school building which is under construction will be finished and ready by the 2022/23 school year! This new site features a basketball court, and soccer field on the roof and offers much more space for activities such as music, art, and anything else a student may want to pursue. GSB has always been open to developing and creating new things when it comes to an interest that students may have. They have developed partnerships with excellent theater and soccer programs, as well as international universities. This new building will only add to the special things this school already has to offer and I truly believe this new building will make a difference. German School Brooklyn provides a safe, inclusive learning environment which makes it possible to have such a great experience!
