At German School Brooklyn, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all education

Our mission is to amplify the unique potential of every child, so they can achieve the greatest version of themselves.

We raise the person not just the student, so we advance the intellectual, emotional and social abilities of every child that will further their progress in learning and living.

We also teach students that there are many ways to find the answer to a question. Learning is to examine the steps it takes to get to any answer, so they have the tools & competence to problem-solve any query or challenge in their future.

Why it matters

Independent thinkers — Each child takes prideful ownership over their own education, empowering them to self-motivate and pursue their passions fully.

Individual acceleration — Our faculty custom design an academic regimen and experience for each individual to accelerate the interests, abilities and progress of each child.

Well-rounded individuals — Children are purposely exposed to different perspectives, environments and scenarios to develop who they are as a student, leader, teammate, citizen and friend.


What we firmly believe in

Small class size
 — This is key for individual support.

Real World Connections — We curate true-to-life lessons that reflect daily realities or scenarios to drive a deeper connection for our students.

Responsive Teaching  — We work with each child’s innate interests and evolve alongside their natural progression and development.

Active Learning — We empower children with choice, encourage them to explore and embolden them to follow their inquiries.
