In the heart of North Texas, German ISD offers more than just a glance at German culture. Since its founding in 2009, German ISD is the only German language immersion program in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex providing full-time, weekday German language instruction to children 18 months to 5 years.                                                          German ISD provides a learning environment deeply rooted in the central European culture and education system, and it also encourages the development of a global perspective and community building.                                                                                             From day one, students are exposed to German language and culture in a warm and supportive environment. Our school focuses on learning through child- directed play experiences and a curriculum based on the “Bayerischer Bildungs- und Erziehungsplan fuer Kinder in Tageseinrichtungen”. Our motivated team of educators believe in the balance of play and preschool, which enhances growth and development of its children in all areas: physically, socially, emotionally, creatively and intellectually.

German ISD is a place where essential skills are nurtured through play, investigation and of course, fun!

Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, German ISD expanded its educational curriculum to include a Kindergarten class, with the goal of establishing a Lower Elementary school by adding one class of students each academic year.         The language concept for our elementary school beginning in Kindergarten is based on the Dual Immersion Method. Students learn to associate one teacher with the German language and one teacher with the English language. The goals of dual immersion programs are to develop bilingualism/biliteracy, academic achievement, and cross-cultural competencies for all students.                                                                                                                                                                                                  Our small class sizes offer individualized learning and foster curiosity, identity, and individual purpose.

German ISD convinces with its’ unique program and the various opportunities for your child to learn and grow into a successful student and a well-rounded global citizen.

“Herzlich Willkommen in unserem deutschen Kindergarten und unserer wachsenden Grundschule-                                         Welcome to German ISD!”
