German School Manhattan is the first German-English bilingual school in the borough of Manhattan set to open in September 2018 with its inaugural Kindergarten Class. GSM will grow one grade per year into a full K-5 program.
The location is well situated, surrounded by parks and playgrounds and easily accessible with close subway stops Chambers Street station (A,C, 2,3) and City Hall station (N, R, W).
GSM will combine proven teaching methods and curricula from Germany with the modern American standards of ELA into a child-centric program. Academic subjects, as well as art, music, and movement are taught in German and/or English. The expertly trained teachers are able to support each child’s individual needs, with attention to language level and developmental skills. Small class size (maximum 20) allows for dedicated teacher/student interaction. GSM puts the child first by ensuring personal well-being, which creates the base for all academic accomplishments..
