German International Parent Association | Miami-Dade County, FL


The annual GIPA Gala brings together all of our GIPA parents, teachers and friends to enjoy a wonderful night out with delicious food, delectable drinks, fantastic company, and a chance to dance the night away!

The Gala is one of our most important fundraising events of the year, and the money we raise directly supports the German programs at each of our schools, ensuring that our children continue to have an enriching and outstanding educational experience.
