GIST International Network


GIST is a private school in Toronto and a proud partner of an extensive global network of over 135 German Schools Abroad, and eight German Schools in North America. German Schools Abroad are supported by the Federal Republic of Germany’s Central Office for Schools Abroad (ZfA). All schools are committed to the highest educational and academic standards. Regular inspections and evaluations ensure that they continue to strive for excellence in education. The schools welcome students of all nationalities. Graduates from German Schools Abroad are part of a community that reaches far beyond one’s own school.

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

German Schools Abroad 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.
