Homestay program for international students
The German International School Sydney (GISS) is the chosen school for some 260 students from very diverse social and linguistic backgrounds. They all share an outwardly oriented, internationally minded, multicultural education, which in many ways reflects and is necessitated by the global mobility of our school’s parents. As such, the International Baccalaureate Diploma is the ideal platform from which to launch the tertiary education of our students.
Following a ground breaking agreement between the IB Organisation and the Standing Committee of Ministers of Cultural Affairs in Germany, the German International School Sydney has been given the honour of being chosen to be the first German School Abroad/""Deutsche Auslandsschule"" to introduce the International Baccalaureate Diploma as an alternative to the German Abitur.
We offer the IB Diploma in a fully multi-lingual environment, with almost all of our students graduating with the full Bilingual Diploma. Our students can complete their Diploma Programme fully in English as the language of instruction, or select a combination of subjects taken in English or German. Further language subjects are also offered for study, such as Mandarin, French and Spanish.
For over 11 years, our Diploma Programme has consistently produced graduates who score well above the world average. We are proud of our 100% 'diploma awarded' pass rate for most of those years. In the May 2014 session, we announced our first perfect score of 45.
