German International School Boston is a bilingual independent school serving students from age 3 to Grade 12.

At GISB, children grow from curious explorers into independent learners. Our mission is to empower students for success in a global world. To us, that means teaching the skills and habits that confident, compassionate, creative global citizens will need.

A student who successfully completes our academic program achieves:

  • native-level proficiency in German and English
  • an advanced math and science education
  • a High School Diploma
  • a German International Abitur

We are proud to be one of seven schools in the United States that meet the strict accreditation requirements of the German government, allowing us to award the Abitur. This prestigious honors-level diploma is recognized at European and American universities as an academic distinction.

But as every traveler knows, it’s not just about the destination. Our vibrant international community makes learning a cross-cultural adventure at every stage of a GISB education. Discover what makes our approach to bilingual education unique. Learn more.
