“The city is our classroom.” – Dr. Jochen Schnack, Head of School
German International School Boston moved to Boston’s Allston neighborhood in 2006. In addition to our welcoming building, students enjoy outdoor play space including two playgrounds, space for active sports, and quieter green space for eating and “hanging out.”
Our learning community enjoys the ease of outings to Harvard University’s athletic facilities, where many physical education classes take place in the fall and spring. With so much within walking distance – public parks, Harvard Square, subway and bus stations – GISB students have easy access an array of institutions and opportunities in Boston and Cambridge.
Lower Campus facility opens for the 2017 – 2018 School Year
We can’t wait to get into our new Lower Campus, located at 387 Western Avenue! We’ve enjoyed the creative process of working with HMFH Architects to create a facility specifically for preschool and kindergarten children, faculty, and families. Check out the floor plan and playground mockups below.
The Lower Campus is only a 6-minute walk from our current building, right across from the Charles River and Artesani Park. The new space will include seven classrooms, a playground, a large indoor multi-use play-space, and a kitchen for small chefs. By expanding, our 57 Holton Street campus will gain four additional classrooms and an outdoor area for students in grades 1 – 12.
