• Introduction

    The East Bay German International School (EBGIS) is a dual-language immersion school currently offering pre-K through grade 8 programs. Our integrated curriculum combines bilingual German and English instruction with project-based learning and a cross-cultural experience. We offer exceptional academics, a diverse international perspective, and a vibrant community of students, parents, and teachers. Based in Emeryville, California, we serve the East Bay community within the San Francisco Bay Area.

    Who We Are

    • An established institution that has served the East Bay community for over ten years, operating as the East Bay campus of the German International School of Silicon Valley until the end of the 2017/18 school year. Beginning in August 2018, EBGIS will operate as an independent entity with local governance and management, enabling us to serve our community even better. 
    • Highly qualified teachers who implement a rigorous and developmentally appropriate curriculum following demanding German standards and prepare students to continue their education at top-tier universities in the US and abroad. 
    • A community of students, parents, teachers, and staff who have a passion for learning through the lens of German language and cultural immersion. 
    • People with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, including German-speaking, English-speaking, and multiple other languages and countries. 
    • Individuals who recognize and value the uniqueness of the San Francisco Bay Area across all of its dimensions – cultural diversity, intellectual curiosity, innovation and entrepreneurship, active engagement with the world, and a passion for making positive change.
