FAIS is pleased to partner with the German American School of Portland (GSP) by
providing a middle school curriculum for their students that allows for the continuation of their current program. GSP students are automatically welcomed at our Gilkey International Middle School in 6th grade, and continue taking advanced level language arts and social studies immersed in German. In addition, GSP middle school students study a third language, choosing from French, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese.
The German American School of Portland is a dual language program for grades PS-5 where both the German and the American languages and cultures are taught and appreciated. GSP’s binational grade school program focuses on each student as a whole and offers a curriculum that seeks to combine both U.S. and German standards of education, as well as academic, social, and artistic concerns. Children develop a pleasure for learning and a natural curiosity about the world around them. For more information about the German American School of Portland, visit their website at www.gspdx.org.
