Our spirit and roots in the community run deep.

Marching in the Von Steuben Parade was great fun for all.

German International School Chicago participates in the Annual Von Steuben Parade as well as many German community based events. We work hand in hand with the DANK Haus, Goethe Institute, and Lycee Francais for cross cultural support. Our staff, parents, and students bring many wonderful experiences together to make the school function better.
