The German International School Pretoria – Deutsche Internationale Schule Pretoria – DSP is a cosmopolitan, multicultural, German-South African school supported by the German Federal government. The DSP is an excellent German school abroad that prepares its learners for a global future.
The DSP offers a German Education from 3 months to grade 12 or Abitur for learners interested in the German language and culture. English-speaking children can be enrolled in the Grade R class of the V-Branch, which is the English branch with the emphasis on learning German. Efficient, modern teaching and learning methods as well as differentiation ensure the progress of every child in the subjects German, English and Mathematics and promote individual development.
The Secondary School I of the German branch encompasses Grades 5 – 9. Learning at this level is guided by German educational standards. There is close co-operation with the educators of the V-branch (English branch) and the New Secondary School through joint teaching of subjects or integrated learning groups.
Subject teachers lay the foundation for modern languages, natural sciences and social sciences and further develop these. Sport and musical-artistic subjects contribute significantly to developing well-rounded individuals. Extensive extra-curricular activities support the maturation of young people and give them room to develop. At the end of Grade 9 learners decide whether they want to follow the Kombi Programme or the NSC Programme.
The language of tuition in the Kombi Programme is German. The Kombi-Abitur enables entry into German or South African universities. In order to promote individual competencies, a methodological curriculum is introduced from Grade 5. This paves the way for our learners to develop a broad spectrum of skills for independent learning which is a prerequisite for successful studies at universities around the world.
In the NSC Programme, tuition is in English and learners are prepared for the NSC examination as set by the Independent Examination Board. The NSC examination is the central South African school leaving examination after Grade 12. At the DSP, it can be supplemented by the German Language Diploma (DSD II). The NSC in combination with the DSD II qualify a learner to study in Germany.
