GISC is officially accepted as Candidate School for the Middle Years Programme (MYP)
We are pleased to report that the German International School Chicago has, as of March 28, officially been accepted by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) as a Candidate School for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). This designation allows the school to refer to itself as an all-IB school with the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in place from preschool through 4th grade and the MYP in place from 5th through 8th grade. Being an all-IB school emphasizes our core belief in the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement while our students make connections between studies in traditional subjects and the real world which encourages them to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
German International School Chicago is a preschool through 8th grade school that prepares students to become well-rounded, creative, and responsible global citizens. We provide students with a rigorous German-English bilingual education in a supportive and individualized learning environment.
