For all interested in learning German, the German Section offers a full programme within a German linguistic and cultural setting and with a curriculum set by the German government.
German child-rearing practices place a high value on independence and responsibility. The same is true for our German Kindergarten where even non-German-speaking kids are welcome to attend.
Our Grundschule or "German Primary" offers an educational programme in line with German traditions of education for children in Grades 1 to 5.
Based on the official curriculum of Germany, our Mittelstufe or "German Middle School" is focused on competencies, providing a modern, holistic education, enriched by the educational principles most typical of Germany and Europe.
Contrary to what one might believe, the German section is open also to non-German speakers. Our Kindergarten programme is set-up to allow for the immersive learning of German for children without prior knowledge of the language. Admission of non-German speaking students in the lower primary grades is also possible under certain conditions.
So-called "lateral integrants" are also welcome to join ab initio courses of German for which certificates issued by German authorities are eligable for receipt upon completion.
Non-German students who finish schooling at the German section get to avail all the opportunities as German nationals have, as far as opportunities for tertiary education in Germany goes. German universities are known not only for their academic standards, but also for being virtually tuition-free.
Like all accredited German schools abroad, the GESM follows a German curriculum according to modern standards of education set in Germany.
Our extensive school network and our support for each other ensure mobility of our students within Asia and Germany, and support the continuity of their German speaking education worldwide.
