German School Seoul Goes International
German School Seoul Goes International in S. Korea

Ambassadors, members of Korean Administration and Government bodies as well as leading managers of world-wide operating companies were the international audience at the German School's presentation of its extended premises and curriculum.

Between the European anthem and the Korean national hymn the school's board, the principals, parents, and students presented not only a colourful image of a modern and individualized school, but most of all a new international approach by far surpassing the traditional German framework of educational values.

Having catered primarily, up to this point to the needs of the German speaking community, as of August 2008 the German School will open it's doors to all those who are looking for a bilingual, i.e. German-English education.

Based on up-to-date German Curricula and European cultural traditions the German School's new educational concept offers an open whole-day-school at the highest level of quality for 2 year-old toddlers up to 18 year-old youth.

A cornerstone of the new concept is the increasing range of subjects taught partially or entirely in the English language. Subject areas include the Natural Sciences, Arts and Social Sciences, mainly at the secondary levels.

The introduction of two additional senior school grades that lead to the internationally recognized exit exam DIAP (German International Abitur Exam) will start in August 2009. The DIAP, newly created by the German Government for German Schools abroad allows up to 50% of the exam to be administered in English and will be conducted for the first time in Seoul in June 2011.

Thus, learning in Seoul according to the quality standard "Made in Germany" dovetails with a truly international approach that is also reflected in the new name DEUTSCHE SCHULE SEOUL INTERNATIONAL.

As of now, the DSSI's website www.dsseoul.org can also be accessed in English.
