• Joint EBGIS / GISSV Statement

    For the last decade, the German International School of Silicon Valley (GISSV) has provided a world-class bilingual education to students not only at its main campus in Mountain View, but also at its East Bay location in Berkeley/Emeryville and in San Francisco. In early 2017, the GISSV board, staff, and parents concluded that the best way to support the East Bay’s growth and success was to create an independent entity with local governance and management to take over East Bay operations beginning in the 2018/2019 school year. To enable an effective transition to a new school entity, GISSV will continue school operations in the coming year. In 2018/19 the East Bay German International School (EBGIS) will take over, striving to continue with all the strengths that make GISSV a fantastic school today – exceptional academics, bilingual German language instruction, a diverse international perspective, and a vibrant community of students, parents, and teachers – while enabling each school to better serve its local community. Both GISSV and EBGIS are looking forward to continuing our partnership in a variety of ways. From field trips to soccer tournaments and seasonal events, our shared culture will inspire us to continue supporting each other far into the future.
