German International School New York (GISNY) is known for its innovative international educational excellence for forty years. The primary language of instruction is German. Additionally, all students study English beginning in Pre-K and begin a third language in sixth grade. 

We are committed to helping students reach their potential in a safe, friendly and stimulating environment that fosters critical thinking as well as appreciation for diversity.

Our program spans across all academic disciplines as well as the arts and sports. Our curriculum is supported and enhanced by science and technology resources, such as SmartBoards, iPads, laptops and labs for hands-on science experiments. 

Working with a dedicated faculty and staff, students benefit from the school's rigorous curriculum, close-knit community, and interactions with the vibrant local culture. Students leave GISNY thoroughly prepared to continue their education in first-class learning institutions around the world.

We welcome you to explore the curriculum and programs offered in our Lower (PreK – gr.  4)  and Middle/Upper Schools (gr. 5 – 12).  Please make a selection from the menu on the left.

GISNY Virtual Science Fair 2021 for students in gr. 1 - 5 | June 21- 24, 2021

We are excited to host our GISNY Science Fair again, and this year for the first time, virtually.

Have you ever wondered....

  • why a balloon sticks to the wall after you rub it against your shirt?
  • why oil and water do not mix?
  • what objects sink or float?

Sign up for the Science Fair, conduct an experiment, videotape your findings and let the whole school community learn from your experiment!

This year we are expanding our virtual Science Fair to include our 1st through 5th graders.

Please read the our flyer carefully, if you have any questions please contact Corinna Guerriere at
