Welcome at the German School Nairobi! Karibu sana!
We are delighted about your interest in the German School Nairobi. Our school offers a demanding, high-quality education for German as well as foreign-speaking children and for students from our host country Kenya.
Our school's bilingual profile will be further accentuated and enhanced by the impending introduction of the "Deutsche Internationale Abitur" (German International High School Diploma / School Leaving Examination Certificate) which will, at the same time, help to maintain our high quality standard and international competitiveness.
At present, 206 students from 20 different nationalities attend classes at our school. Our extensive compound also accommodates our bilingual kindergarten (133 children).

On Friday the 19th February 2016 we went to the Mlango-Farm. We met at the schoolyard at 07.45 am to collect class one and class two, in order to be ready at 8.00 am sharp to enter the busses going to the direction of Limuru. It was a very turbulent ride, going through a lot of branches and undergrowth. But we arrived safely after an hour at the farm.

19:30 and Leon is still stuck in traffic! Our flight leaves at 20:40 and he’s given till 20:00 to arrive. Unfortunately, he arrives 5 minutes after boarding time so he cannot fly with us. The class is devastated but we keep our hopes up that he will make the next flight, which would be at the same time the following day. This was exhibit A of our ‘’African timing”.
