The German International School of Riga
is attended by students from 27 different countries (2022)

THE GERMAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF RIGA

is one of the best international schools in Riga founded in the summer of 2015. The goal of the school is to provide its students with a German international education meeting the highest standards.

The school is open to residents of Latvia as well as to international students whose parents stay in Latvia temporarily. As of May 2022 our private school is attended by more than 250 students from about 25 different countries. Students of the elementary school learn German, English, and a third language. In middle school a 4th world language is added.

At the pre-school and kindergarten levels the primary staff from Germany is supported by local German speaking teaching assistants who also understand Latvian, Russian and English. The focus of the academic and pedagogic curricula at the pre-school and kindergarten levels is on the acquisition of the German language by non-native speaking students, so they will have a smooth start into 1st grade. In parallel our youngest students are introduced to English through daily playtime sessions. Formal daily English lessons start at the pre-school level. 

In addition to German and English, elementary school students may study Latvian and Russian for up to 6 lessons per week. All languages are exclusively taught by native speakers. Special emphasis is given to the acquisition of complete fluency in all three languages.

In middle school (5th grade and higher), the 4th language is introduced, with a end-of-school goal of medium proficiency. Students choose between Italian, Chinese, Spanish and French.

The school’s regular daily classes are thaught between 08:30 and 15:30, but the school doors are open from 08:00-18:30. After 15:30 the school offers assisted homework study hall, optional extra-curricular afternoon activities, as well as supervised child care until 18:30.

New school year

For the new school year starting on 1 September 2022 the school accepts children ages 15 months – 12 years old (children born 2009-2021). Enrolement of students into elementary or middle school without sufficient prior knowledge in German is possible through the provision of private lessons as well as attendance of our preparatory summer language course taking place 18 July-19 August 2022.

"Conquer the world with multiple languages"

Our mission is to provide a happy environment for your child, where it can grow and thrive, while acquiring the education needed to succeed in tomorrow’s world.

THE RIGHT EDUCATION FOR TOMORROW’S GLOBAL CITIZEN
