GISSV San Francisco:
Preschool – Kindergarten – Grade 1-8

Thank you for your interest in GISSV.


Welcome to GISSV San Francisco! Our campus is situated in the heart of the Castro (Eureka Valley) and offers an ideal location for young learners from Preschool to Grade 8. Surrounded by some of the city's most beautiful parks such as Mission Dolores Park, Corona Heights Park, and Kite Hill, our students have ample opportunities to explore and play in nature. Additionally, the adjacent Eureka Valley Rec Center and Rikki Streicher Field provide sports fields and open space for further outdoor activities.

Our campus offers plenty of space for project-based learning activities that make our full Preschool-Grade 8 program come alive. With small class sizes, we are able to provide personalized attention to each child, building a strong sense of community across grade levels, parents, and teachers. 

We pride ourselves in our truly international outlook and welcome families from all cultural and language backgrounds. For children who enter our program with little or no knowledge of German or English, we offer strong language learning support in both DaZ (German as a 2nd language) and ESL (English as a 2nd language).

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our community and what we have to offer.
