Our Growing Campus

Our Growing Campus

“The city is our classroom.” – Dr. Jochen Schnack, Head of School

German International School Boston moved to Boston’s Allston neighborhood in 2007. 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 now open for the 2017 – 2018 School Year

We are thrilled to have our Preschool and Kindergarten students in our beautiful new Lower Campus facility at 387 Western Avenue! We enjoyed the creative process of working with HMFH Architects to create a facility specifically for our youngest students, faculty, and families.

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 includes seven classrooms, a playground, a large indoor multi-use play-space, and a kitchen for small chefs. By expanding, our 57 Holton Street campus has gained four additional classrooms including a second dedicated Science Room, a Music Room, and another outdoor area for students in grades 1 – 12.
