About Us

The Private School of the German Embassy in Ankara has provided exceptional education for over 60 years.
As with all German schools abroad, our primary aspiration is to pass on the German language and culture. We provide education from first through tenth grade using the curriculum of the State of Thuringia. In grades eleven and twelve, we follow the regulations of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
Classes run from 07:55 to 12:55 in the morning and from 13:50 to 15:20 in the afternoon.

The following degrees can be obtained at the German School:

Degrees of the German Educational System:

  • Hauptschule diploma after ninth grade
  • Realschule (secondary school O-level diploma) after 10th grade
  • The right to transfer into the Gymnasium (academic high school) after 10th grade.
