Give your child the gift of a bilingual education 

Research consistently supports the lifelong cognitive benefits of bilingual education. But more than that, it inspires a global view on life – and a deep appreciation for cultural diversity.  

Established in 2008, DSM offers a quality German-English curriculum and a warm, cohesive culture where everyone belongs.  

Today, with 130 children across 27 nationalities and 24 languages, the school welcomes children of all backgrounds, including those without any German knowledge. Currently, one-third of its Foundation Year students don’t speak German at home.   

With spaces available from Foundation Year to Year 6, DSM will open your child’s heart and mind to the world around them.  

Bilingual curriculum

As an accredited German school abroad, DSM’s curriculum satisfies the highest standards in both countries’ education systems – creating a world of future study and career opportunities for its students.   

With our successful immersion program, we make learning a new language easy. From Foundation to Year 2, we teach 80% of subjects in German. By Year 6, this reduces to 50%. What’s more, our students can study French from Year 5. 

Studying in three countries

At DSM, we also offer our former students, and children with equivalent language skills in Year 7 or above, a place in our DSD program– their gateway to a German Language Certificate DSD II (Deutsches Sprachdiplom). 
A key to a world of opportunity, DSD II opens the door for students to study in German at universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. What is more, it is extremely helpful for students undertaking the VCE German exam. 
If you are looking for a high-quality bilingual school and a close, warm community, please get in touch. I also invite you to attend one of our Open Days– or to takea private school tour.
