German Immersion Program
German ISD offers the only German Immersion Program in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We believe that the ability to speak more than one language fluently creates the leaders of tomorrow who will navigate and communicate in a culturally rich and globally focused world. German ISD’s whole child focused curriculum is based on the “Bayerischer Bildungs- und Erziehungsplan” and is founded on five key pillars:
- Asking & Exploring
- Creative Arts
- Confident Children
- Social Skills & Development
As part of our German language focus, we recognize various German holidays. As our families represent many different nationalities, we regularly integrate cultural and language diversity into our learning in addition to traditional American school holiday traditions.
From day one, students are exposed to German language and culture in a warm and supportive environment. Small class sizes offer individualized learning and foster curiosity, identity, and individual purpose. The staff follows the “German Kindergarten Philosophy”, which emphasizes the development of children in a holistic manner. Outdoors, children bring their all-weather appropriate clothing and ride balance bikes, play in the sandbox, climb and swing, run around or kick the ball in our beautiful outside play area, our “Spielplatz”. German ISD is a place where essential skills are nurtured through play, investigation and of course, fun!
The German ISD team believes in the balance of play and instructed learning, which enhances growth of its children in all areas: physically, socially, emotionally, creatively and intellectually.
