Joining the GISAD as an English-speaking student

English speaking children with no prior knowledge of the German language may join GISAD at the Kindergarten stage. There is an entrance assessment for both the child and the parents to assess their suitability to cope with a foreign language environment and their personal capabilities. After completing the interview and assessment with our Head of Kindergarten and a selected board you will be notified if your child has passed and whether he/she has been allocated a place.

If you would like to register for the next assessment exam, please email:
