March 30, 2020:  Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order for Marylanders which means no one should leave their home for any reason other than essential work, to get food or other fundamental reason. The order takes effect at 8 pm.
For the GISW this means:

1. All GISW buildings will be closed for the foreseeable future. 

2. In order to give our teachers and parents more time to prepare, we are postponing both parent nights that were scheduled for tonight to Thursday at the same time.

Distance Learning until Friday, April 24th, 2020.

We are here for you as we continue to prepare for the 2020/21 school year. The Admissions Office remains open. Please complete this form and we will contact you:

"Yummy Prospects"

With this slogan Susanne Koehler, Director of Food Services and Operations, runs the kitchen of the German International School Washington D.C. since 1999 professionally.

With the help of three volunteer parents she leads the preparation of a healthy, kid-friendly homestyle-cooked meal every day.

The volunteers work about every 4 weeks from 9:00 – 1:30 pm and get a great insight into their childrens' daily life at school, they learn about working in a big kitchen and they get to make lots of new friends in the school's community.

If you have any questions please contact Ms. Koehler, Director of Food Services and Operations, in the cafeteria.

phone: 240-418-3295
or phone: 301.767.3829 (9:30 am-2:00 pm)
