Thank you German-American School! We admit we were a bit skeptical when we signed up our son for Kindergarten (9 years ago). This is an after-school program, after all – but now he graduated and got a good NY FLAC exam grade, our High School is awarding HS credit. It wasn’t easy – especially in the upper grades- but we did it! If they have an Advanced Placement preparation next year we will sign him up for that. Great program! Not always easy!

Our family is so happy that Celeste got a silver medal this year – she has worked so hard and we are proud that it finally paid off – thanks to all the teachers who prepared her so well (and Oma and Opa, who helped with pronunciation). We were really impressed with the turnout at graduation – all the medalists were there and the Advanced Placement class was honored as well.
German-American School might only be an after-school program, but they run it like a real school.

Our daughter had a lot of fun in Playgroup to Kindergarten – but after lst grade the curriculum got harder and we took her out of the school – after 4th grade there are just too many exams. The school is also a bit strict about absences – and more than 5 means there is a chance you won’t get promoted to next grade. But soccer practice is at the same time as German classes.. Maybe we will sit out the year and go back later.

After three years of attending the German American School, Nzingha has become more than 90% fluent in German Having visited Germany but never having lived there, this is a result she could only achieve thanks to an excellent curriculum, a fantastic, dedicated teaching staff and caring leadership.

My 3 children attended German American school all the way through taking the FLAX exam. It was a wonderful experience for them and a warm and welcoming atmosphere especially being that we do not speak German at home. 3 years after my last daughter graduated, her high school wanted some paperwork from the school to show what classes she had taken. When I contacted The principal she was so helpful in getting what we needed. She sent us all the copies we needed in a timely manner.
The staff at German American School are fantastic people who do a great job educating the children. My family whole heartedly recommends it!
Thank you very much!
