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).

We made it!!

On the night of the 17th of November, the German School Nairobi opened its doors to its first ever Let’s Dance for Charity Event – in favour of our partner school, the Starkids School in Githogoro. A good hundred people took the opportunity to get together and spend a nice evening in good company and happy spirits. We had a fabulous evening with excellent food provided by Gaye D’Costa and our own excellent new kitchen chef Florian Kliem. The ambience was set with lighted tents from Goldwings, who kindly reduced the costs for us in favour of Starkids! And drinks were organised by Summit Beer with support from Dieter Gachie – except the welcome drink, which was made following the secret recipe of one of our school members...

The title is not just an ordinary statement. It is a statement that can be proven, because every metabolism process in our body is induced by chemical reactions. We, the grade 12, also had thoughts about this assertion. We thought: - Before we leave, we should show our “offspring”, what we have learned in the countless chemistry lessons we have had -. This led to the “older ones” inviting the “older ones of the primary school” to the chemistry show.
