Welcome greeting – School Principal

Dear visitors,

I would like to welcome you to the website of the Deutsche Internationale Schule Pretoria.

The DSP was founded in 1899. It is a German-South African school of encounters, which currently has approximately 900 learners and offers a crèche (from age 3 months), a Kindergarten and a school up to Grade 12 in both a German and an English branch.

The German graduations offered are the “Haupt- und Realschulabschluss“ as well as the combined graduation of the „Deutsches Internationales Abitur” (DIA) and National Senior Certificate (NSC), which grants learners access to tertiary education in Germany as well as South Africa.

The learners in our English branch complete the National Senior Certificate, which is the prerequisite for studying in South Africa. Together with the “Deutsches Sprachdiplom” (DSD ll), which is also offered at our school, these learners also have the opportunity to study at a German college or university.

It is our goal to create a learning environment for our learners, which supports and assists them, allows them to be innovative, encourages them to think critically and democratically and where they can reach their full potential. In our international, multicultural environment, we value and promote tolerance, open-mindedness and a passion for lifelong, independent learning.

Next to an excellent, high quality educational standard, our focus lies specifically on the musical and scientific-technological fields. A diverse sport offering also distinguishes our school.

You are very welcome to search our website for more detailed information or to make personal contact with us.

Beate Kiehn
