German and International

German is the national language of Europe's largest and the world's fourth largest economy. Considering Germany’s influence in the arts as well as in science, engineering, and business fields, it is clear that German language fluency opens the door to a world of opportunities.

With over 100 million German speakers in Germany and across the world, German has a truly global cultural and linguistic presence. That’s why EBGIS is an international school, not just a German school. We see the world through the lens of German language and cultural immersion, actively engage with other cultures, and create opportunities for our students to learn in a dynamic, multidimensional way with a global perspective.
