We love celebrating German traditions...
My daughter is 10 and my son is 7. We lived in Vienna for two years where my daughter went to a bilingual German English school and my son was in pre-school. When we returned to the US we wanted them to continue and not lose their skills. We also love celebrating German traditions like Fasching and St. Nicholas.

Friendly & Welcoming
My children have taken German classes here since we've moved to the area (we transferred here from another German school). We're homeschoolers, so having help teaching a language has been a huge help. Having class on Thursday afternoons works very well in our life, as we are also big into soccer. The classes, teachers, staff, and other parents here are friendly & welcoming.

Great way to introduce my child to the German language
My mother is from Switzerland, however I myself never became fluent in Swiss-German or German. Since I still have a lot of family in Switzerland, it has always been on my bucket list to learn German better. I was so excited to find out about the NJ German School and start the Musikgarten class with my then 9-month-old son because I knew it would be a great way to introduce my child to the German language while working on my goals, too. It has been such a positive experience for us. My oldest has since moved on to the preschool class and now hosts pretend German class at home daily. I credit his teachers and the cultural celebrations he has been exposed to at the school for sparking such enthusiasm in this young, non-native speaker.

Helped them better understand English grammar
Going to the German School has not only introduced a language but also the culture of three countries – Germany, Switzerland and Austria – when we celebrate Fasching and St. Nicholas. In fact, it’s helped them better understand English grammar, as well as introduced them to the world beyond the Jersey Shore and broadened the opportunity to study abroad in the future. And, they’ve been able to speak with their Swiss cousins when we visited them in the summer.
