SCHOOL NAME:GERMAN SWISS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (German) (Pok Fu Lam Campus)

http://www.gsis.edu.hk/


                                 The German Swiss International School (GSIS) is an international school in Hong Kong established in 1969. Around 150 teachers and 250 staff members in total work with around 1,300 students, from Kindergarten to Secondary level to the Business College, which offers Wholesale & Foreign Trade and Transport & Logistics Management training programmes. 

Long-renowned for our excellence in teaching and student achievement, GSIS operates as one school with two parallel streams at two campuses. GSIS offers a German and English curriculum based education, leading to internationally recognised certificates such as the German International Abitur, IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme. 

GSIS provides a sustainable and holistic education, making it possible for our students to recognise and develop their diverse and individual potential and talent. Our core programme consists of humanistic, science and creative subjects as well as a comprehensive language offering and is completed by an extensive and manifold list of extracurricular activities. 

With students hailing from over 30 different countries, cultural diversity is a given at GSIS and we see a heterogeneous and inclusive way of teaching as a viable and valuable component of school life. Outside the classroom learning opportunities such as Discovery Week and the GSIS house system foster team and community spirit and promote effort and positive social behaviour. 
The GSIS Peak campus, dedicated to upper Primary and Secondary students, underwent extensive renovation during recent years, with all buildings having reopened as of November 2016. The development process took eight years in total and has resulted in numerous additional facilities, including new art studios; the relocation and enlargement of the Primary and Secondary libraries; new science rooms; new gymnasiums; a black box theatre; a cafeteria; and dedicated music classrooms; IT facilities; as well as the relocation and conversion of the swimming pool on the rooftop for year-round use.
