Currently, GISSV has more than 550 enrolled students at its two locations. Primary languages spoken at home by GISSV students include English, German, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Korean, and Chinese. Both campuses offer the same bilingual program which features an academically rigorous curriculum with quality instructors and small class sizes. It is unique in that it is one of only five recognized German schools abroad in the United States and the only one offering a High School Diploma on the West Coast. Advantages of being accredited as a German school abroad include report cards recognized in Germany, accredited diplomas (German International Abitur and High School Diploma,) and ongoing support from the German government. The fully bilingual approach helps enable seamless entry into both the American and European educational systems and offers graduates the opportunity to qualify for both American and European universities.
GISSV is a California nonprofit organization governed by a Board of Directors comprised of parent volunteers from all three campuses and operated in accordance with the California nonprofit corporation code and the GISSV bylaws.
