German American School of Portland
Courses / Programs
The German American School of Portland is a grade school offering preschool, kindergarten and elementary school programs with a dual language program where both the German and the English languages and cultures are taught and appreciated. Located in Beaverton, 10 km from Portland in Portland West, Oregon, our families come from all over the greater Portland area. We make teaching children a second language fun.

Not only do our students learn a second language, they are immersed in German culture through music, art, books and conversation with everyone around them. Our preschoolers and Kindergarteners acquire their first foreign language skills in a playful way without realizing how our focus on art, crafts, music, songs and games gently introduces them to German.

In fact, we open the door to more than one culture: by being bilingual, our children develop more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to other languages and cultures, and a better ear for listening. Bilingualism. The gift that lasts a lifetime.
Preschool, Kindergarten & Elementary School with German / English bilingual program:

- Children are immersed in German culture through music, art, books and conversation with everyone around them.

- All of our preschool and Kindergarten teachers are certified as early childhood educators (in Germany and the US) and have native or near-fluency in German.
