Parent Testimonials

The school creates a strong sense of community, one in which the kids are excited to belong, curious to learn, and eager to participate. Our son runs to school as if it were a playground.

— Nicholas Blechman, Creative Director, The New Yorker

GSB is what the city and its German community needed – an inclusive school with instruction in German and English, and modern pedagogy.

— Anne & Daniel Kehlmann, award winning author "Measuring the world"
