Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

GESS values its roots founded on German and European cultures, languages and traditions. We aim to provide each of our students with the best possible education, instilling a passion for Learning, Living and Giving and developing their skills to master their future. We value the global diversity and our close-knit community gives students and parents multiple options to be engaged at GESS and to bring in ideas. Our goal is to provide our students with an international training that will help them become active agents, committed to the growth and development of the multicultural societies they belong to; as well as being responsible, critical thinking and cosmopolitan.

Teaching approach of the school

The teaching approach in the IB programmes is student centred. Teachers differentiate to cater for the different learning preferences of their students. Students are not ranked nor compared. Instead, students are motivated to work to individual learning targets. Debate and discussion forms part of the inquiry-based teaching and learning programme and much collaborative learning takes place.
