The German International School of Silicon Valley (GISSV) is an independent school with three locations in the Bay Area, offering a preschool - high school campus in Berkeley, located in the beautiful landmark Hillside School in the Berkeley Hills.
The German/English dual-language immersion GISSV Preschool and Kindergarten program, lovingly named "Kibili", lays a strong foundation through project-based learning. Our goal is to nurture the holistic and individual development of each child. We focus on creative and cognitive skills, while also fostering a sense of responsibility, perception and intercultural awareness. Children play, experiment and learn in comprehensive learning groups according to a concept called "learning through self-learning". Projects and carefully arranged learning environments that tie in with the children's day-to-day lives provide the foundation for educational processes. Our Kindergarten assures a smooth transition into the GISSV elementary school.
