    "I have taken my child's to this school since they were two years old and I'm so happy with the school. I'm not german but I do speak ir fluently and my husband doesn't even speak german so when my child's started it was a little bit hard but now they do speak it fluently. It's a very special school in wich each student is very important and the teacher care a lot about them. The parents also get involved in their kids education. It's a very good school and it's very affordable."

    "The German School is obviously not for everybody. For one, the students need to speak German. It may be possible with dedication for a child to start in the pre-school and learn enough to continue into elementary school and beyond. Also, parents who need their kids to be special and officially designated as gifted probably won't be happy here. Which is part of what makes the German School beautiful. There is an amazing community - the parents in our class know each other, have class events together, etc. There is almost zero competition among the students, at least in the lower grades (all I can speak to so far). The expectation is that everybody will do well and they'll help each other. The parents are very involved but much more relaxed than in American schools. It is more like things were a generation ago except tolerant in a European way. It is beautiful to see the kids speaking two languages constantly, going back and forth effortlessly. I could go on and on. I also love how many things that other families have to build into their schedule just happen at the school as part of the afternoon program: karate, sports, swimming, theater, etc. A very special place, really."

    "For a school that teaches bilingually in German and English, it's a really good school. The sciences and languages are especially strong. As a student you choose to learn a third language in the 6th grade. You can choose either Spanish or French, and you have the option of taking this up to the 12th grade, by which time you are nearly fluent. There is also an option to take Latin for three years, and to pick up whichever language you hadn't learned (French or Spanish) in 10th grade. Sciences are taught starting from 5th grade, and biology, chemistry and physics are required all years up to 10th grade (you take them simultaneously). Personally I kept up with all of the sciences up to 12th grade. I felt passionately about them ever since I was allowed to dissect a baby pig and three different mammal brains. Sports are also highly valued, and the school campus is large enough that one can play tennis in the tennis court, volleyball in the volleyball court and soccer at the soccer stadium all outside. There are also three inside basketball courts and a swimming pool. Every student is required to learn how to swim starting in 2nd grade. My experience at the school was wonderful until 10th grade, where I had the understanding to look into school politics and see how badly the school was being run. But if you can ignore that, the German School gives a phenomenal education."
