German International School Of Silicon Valley - San Francisco Campus:
The German International School Of Silicon Valley (GISSV) is a bilingual school serving the broad academic needs of children in the San Francisco Bay Area from preschool through Grade 12 in German and English. With locations in Mountain View, Berkeley, and San Francisco, GISSV is the only elementary and secondary school in the Western United States that meets the strict accreditation requirements of the German government, thus enabling entry into the best European and American colleges and universities.

GISSV's San Francisco Campus:

After receiving significant support from parents in San Francisco, GISSV decided to proceed with opening a bilingual German/English K-5 campus at a beautiful location in the Presidio. The San Francisco campus started instruction to no more than 20 Kindergarten students - providing a supporting teacher/student ratio of 1:10 - in August 2011. One grade will be added per year to establish a full K-5 program by 2016. The Presidio is an oasis of nature in the city, offering tremendous opportunities for exploration - just a great place for kids to grow and learn!

We welcome both German and non-German speaking families, as well as anyone interested in a high quality bilingual education and who understand that a multilingual, multicultural education prepares children to become future leaders in the global marketplace. Our school is an optimal choice for families in the Bay Area either long or short term.
