About the GIST International Network

Around the globe, an extensive network of 140 German Schools Abroad is supported by the Federal Republic of Germany’s Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA) – and we are one of them!

German Schools Abroad are committed to the highest educational and academic standards. Regular inspections and evaluations ensure that they continue to strive for excellence in education.

We are proud to work closely with our six partner schools in North America:

All six schools are accredited by the ZfA and proudly uphold their reputation as “Exzellente Deutsche Auslandsschulen” (Excellent German School Abroad).

This seal of excellence has been awarded to a large number of German Schools Abroad all over the world and recognises that they meet the ZfA’s rigorous accreditation standards. These schools offer an exceptional academic program and, by doing so, empower students around the world to be successful global citizens. One of the many benefits of this extensive network is that it allows children of families, who relocate from one country to another, to transition smoothly into a new daily school routine and a new place of learning.
