Admissions: General Information
The German-American International School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It welcomes students from all backgrounds and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Admission to the School will be determined by the Head of School and Preschool Director, with the advice of the teaching staff, based on information obtained with respect to:
a) The potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational services available.
b) The capacity of the School to meet the educational needs of the applicant.
c) The match of the child/family with the school and its educational goals.
It is recommended that parents visit the campus before making an application and discuss the admission process and criteria with the GAIS administrative staff. Tours of the campus can be booked at any time through the school office.
Applications for admission for the current school year can be considered at any time. It is recommended that parents contact the school to determine if there are any places open in the grade or program they are interested in.
Applications for admission for September of the next school year can be made at any time and the school will advise parents of the admissions schedule of the section applied for. Priority will be given to children of parents already enrolled at GAIS.
All applications are reviewed by the school administration in light of the school’s admissions criteria and you will receive a written response to your application indicating the next steps to take.
