My favorite thing about my class is that we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses and always help each other out. You make friends and connections all over the world.

Julia has been at GISB for 14 years and will be our first graduate to have spent her entire school career here. Julia is Russian-American and plans to study Biology in Hamburg next year, where she looks forward to reconnecting with other GISB graduates.

Moritz|Kindergarten

I like the teachers because they are so nice and they sing songs with us. I always bring things in for show and tell. I like to share things with my friends.

Moritz is German and has been at GISB for 3 years.  His favorite subjects are English and Art and he is proud that he recently learned to write numbers. He loved the recent Kindergarten project where he made a passport and a suitcase and then “traveled” with his class around the world. Painting a leprechaun in Ireland was especially fun!

David|6th Grade

I used to have problems with fractions. But then one day, when I explained it to my friends, a light bulb just clicked on and I got it.

David is German-Swiss and has been at GISB for eight years. He is involved in student government and is part of SeaChange, an initiative that encourages the creation of student-led clubs in the middle and upper school. He has shared his “light bulb moment” with other students and now helps tutor peers in Math. David is passionate about sports and technology. He loves GISB’s opportunities within the regular school day for off-campus physical education, including rock-climbing and swimming.
