Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Deutsche Schule Kobe International is a German international school abroad and an IB World School for children ages 2 to 11. DSKI provides an exceptional, innovative education anchored by its German heritage with international values and recognized for embracing the rich diversity in its learners and the world. DSKI approaches education holistically in order to ensure that students learn using their heart, head and hands.

Teaching approach of the school

Your child will be placed into either the German branch or the International branch. The German branch is usually for native German speakers or for parents who would like their child to have core subjects in German (maths and German language classes).

The International (English) branch is for parents who would like all of their child's lessons to be in English. Please note all students also take compulsory Japanese lessons taught either as JFL (Japanese as a foreign language) or as KOKUGO (Japanese as a native language). All students in the International branch also have two German lessons a week.

We are an official IB school with a Primary Years Programme (PYP)
