  • Project days (including an annual project week)




Student Exchange: A world of opportunities


As part of our commitment to promoting cultural diversity and understanding, GISSV offers exceptional student exchange programs with partner schools in Dresden, Valparaiso, and Bordeaux. Our High School students have the unique opportunity to visit these schools, where they stay with host families, learn about different school systems and cultures, and immerse themselves in the local community. Partner school students also visit GISSV, allowing for a true cultural exchange and giving our students a chance to showcase life in the Bay Area.

Through these programs, our students develop their language skills, enhance their global citizenship, and gain a deeper appreciation for different perspectives and ways of life. Our bilingual education and exchange programs are an integral part of our mission to create lifelong learners who are capable of thriving in a rapidly changing global society.
