German Swiss International School (GSIS) is a leading dual-language institution in Hong Kong that offers through-train education from Kindergarten to Secondary. Renowned for its academic excellence, GSIS provides a multicultural education in two equally successful streams where both diplomas are globally recognised–the German International Stream (GIS) delivering the German International Abitur Diploma (DIA) and the English International Stream with the IGCSE and International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation.

For those looking for a bilingual education, the German International Stream provides students access to a vast network of 135 German Schools Abroad to enjoy global opportunities. Open to all nationalities, no prior knowledge of the German language is required in certain age groups. In this stream, students can either choose vocational training to get real-life experience or continue their academic career at a university in Germany where an education resident visa is granted, plus tuition is offered gratuitously by the German government. They also become proficient in one of Europe’s most commonly spoken languages and develop into socially and globally conscious citizens.

The English International Stream culminates in the IGCSE and IB Diploma where outstanding results are consistently delivered and ranked among the top globally. Students develop an understanding of the tools and strategies for successful learning and the environment inspires them to discover their untapped potential. The aim is to instil a profound sense of joy and fulfilment by cultivating individual interests and passions across a wide array of subjects and activities such as the arts, sports, community service, and entrepreneurship.
