German European School Manila: The Only Recognized German School in the Philippines
German European School Manila (GESM) is the only international school in Manila which puts a large focus on the introduction and development of European culture and language to its students. At the same time, it is the only recognized “German School Abroad” in the Philippines.
GESM Campus located inside the Better Living Subdivision in Parañaque City
The school offers three academic programs from preschool to International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP): International Section, German Section, and IB Diploma, with a curriculum based on IB Primary Years Program (PYP), Cambridge, and the IBDP.
Its German Section, on the other hand, follows a German curriculum and is taught in the German language, but non-German speakers who wish to enroll in the German Section are welcome to do so.
GESM also has a 32-week program called the Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA) Program. ECA offers after-school activities in sports, performing, and creative arts for the students.
