The Deutsche Schule Kobe / European School provides a unique, multilingual education to learners ages 2 to 11 in three languages: English, German and Japanese.
The German School Kobe is proud to be an International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) World School. We provide an environment that nurtures the academic, emotional, social, physical and creative growth of children of all ages, cultural backgrounds and experiences. As an IB World School, we strive to ignite a passion for lifelong learning and a desire to make positive change in the world.
DESK has two main branches: German and International (English language). Though learners spend most of their day together in an integrated classroom with both English- and German-speaking homeroom teachers, math and language instruction occurs in either German or English.
One aspect that is very unique to our school is our language programme: 3 languages in primary school with English and German (curriculum) and Japanese as JFL (Japanese as a Foreign Language) and KOKUGO (native Japanese Curriculum).
