Welcome and Willkommen to German School Brooklyn!
GSB is dedicated to making bilingual education attainable by all Brooklyn families. GSB enrolls students without prior knowledge of German. We welcome German learners throughout the Lower School years, though we recommend starting our program in Kindergarten. In Middle and Upper School, we employ two German-language tracks. German speaking students will earn the German International Baccalaureate Diploma (GIB), and German learners will earn the International Baccalaureate Diploma with a German language component. This system welcomes non-German speakers to join GSB in Middle or Upper School, in addition to Lower School. Starting in fall 2022 the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) will be implemented in Grade 9. GSB's interim building is at 9 Hanover Place in downtown Brooklyn. Our permanent home is set to open in 2022, at Rogers Avenue and Sterling Place, in Crown Heights.
News & Events
In Fall 2022 GSB will move from 9 Hanover Place to its forever home, a newly constructed school building at 760 Sterling Place. This is the year in which we are doubling down on our fundraising efforts. We are excited to announce that the 7th Annual Summer Gala will be back "in-person" on May 17th.
