- The GSB Curriculum:
- We follow a Mixed Academic Model (50/50), taking the best practices from both German and American approaches. This hybrid approach focuses on independence, exploration, reasoning and creative problem-solving in the classroom. We build our entire approach with the goal of instilling a lifelong passion and aptitude for learning within every child. GSB accepts non-German speakers and German speakers with no German reading and writing proficiency up to 6th grade. 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 school management team.
