The German Saturday School (Deutsche Samstagsschule Houston) has provided greater Houston with over 30 years of quality German language and cultural classes. Originally founded in 1986 by three mothers for their young children, the school has increased in size and scope and today is offering a comprehensive program for students of all ages from preschoolers to adults.
We have designed a curriculum meeting the requirements of the American Association for Teachers in German (AATG), the German Advanced Placement Test (AP), the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and the German Language Diploma ( DSD).Our students prepare for college credit exams and study abroad programs. The school is accredited to administer German language exams recognized by German universities, thus facilitating the integration of international families.
Since particular emphasis is placed on teaching German in its cultural and historical context, the school is host to numerous German cultural events, including Oktoberfest, Day of German Unity, Saint Martin’s Day Parade, German Christmas Market, Karneval, Easter and Sommerfest. Our bakery welcomes students and parents on Saturday morning with typical German goodies like Brezen, Schwarzbrot and delicious pastries.
