Parent Testimonials

GSM has allowed us to continue fostering native German language education for our three children, without sacrificing anything to do so. With a daughter in 1st grade and twins in Kindergarten, we couldn’t be happier with the comprehensive education they receive across Math, Science, Music, Social Studies, and even Ethics. The teachers are all outstanding, the staff is caring, considerate and professional, and the location can’t be beat. While walking hand in hand with my daughter last week, she looked up at me said: “Mommy, I LOVE my school!”. That said it all!

— Kerri D.

“I cannot explain how lucky we are to be able to send our children to GSM which opened just in time for my son’s Kindergarten intake. The school is a gift, the teachers amazing and, most importantly, my son literally runs to school every morning and cannot wait to start a new day.”

— Chiara G.
