German School Manhattan is the first German-English bilingual lower school in the borough of Manhattan, which opened its doors in September 2018 with an inaugural Kindergarten Class. GSM will grow one grade per year into a full Lower School.

GSM combines proven teaching methods and curricula from Germany and the United States, crafting a unique, child-centered curriculum that represents German and New York State Department of Education standards. 

Subjects are taught in German and English by native speakers. The expertly trained teachers are able to support each child’s individual needs, with attention to language level and developmental skills. Small class size (maximum 20) allows for dedicated teacher-student interaction.

GSM puts the child first: personal well-being is the foundation for all academic accomplishments.
