English-German Dual Immersion
Elementary School & Preschool


GSM (German-American School Manhattan) is the only German-English dual immersion Elementary school in the borough. The newly established Preschool is open to students who don’t have prior exposure to the German language. Located in the heart of Tribeca on Warren Street, GSM admits children starting at 3 years of age. Attending GSM Preschool is the ideal preparation for the continuing K-5 program. GSM is currently an IB PYP Candidate School.

GSM uses small classes to make a big impact. Expertly trained educators teach in their native language, while the intimate group settings allow for dedicated student-teacher interaction.

GSM’s inquiry-based preschool curriculum is stimulating for curious learners and promotes a culture of empathy and understanding. Music and dance are an integral part of the weekly schedule and daily outdoor time allows for playtime and explorations in nature.

GSM’s transdisciplinary K-5 curriculum has re-imagined bilingual education for NYC. Our school’s unique proposition is that the German educational model is blended with the NY State academic standards and by that goes beyond the expectations of either: The IB model of inquiry adds depth and agency to our students’ learning
In the context of a globally connected future we are teaching relevant skills regarding the self and the world we are shaping. GSM values academics, arts, and activism and raises future leaders that dare to make a difference.”

Children at GSM are community-minded and take deep pride in themselves and their fellow students. GSM strives to foster each child’s natural joy, openness, and curiosity.

We celebrate global-mindedness! GSM is a diverse community with more than 20 languages spoken across our families. Families come from all of NYC’s boroughs and New Jersey. We would love to share more about our program. GSM offers rolling admissions and hosts admission events all year round. Please inquire at to schedule a tour.
Knowledge of German is not a requirement.
