What Our Families Have To Say

We originally chose the German program because I wanted my children to learn my native language.  Our children had an easy transition from each school into the next. The German teachers seamlessly introduce German language and culture into the curriculum. Now our boys are at Coral Reef and thriving. We feel grateful and thankful that our children have had the unique opportunity to attend the German program. Thank you GIPA!

The George Family

Coral Reef Senior High School

We chose the German program because I am German and, although I was raised in Spain, I wanted my kids to learn the German language; the language of Opa and Oma.  Moreover, they learn to be open minded and respectful towards other cultures, races and ethnicities.

The Narberhaus Family

Sunset Elementary School

As a child, I can remember hearing my grandparents speak in their native language…. Although they mostly spoke Spanish, every once in a while they would turn to each other and sprechen die Deutsch. I wished as I grew older and wiser that I would have begged my grandparents to teach me German so that today I would be trilingual.  It’s not too late though for our children. They now have this incredible opportunity to learn a wonderful language in the German program that will greatly benefit them in the future.
