In the German stream we follow the Thuringia curriculum and the English stream is based on the Cambridge curriculum.

From kindergarten through to class 10,  we  emphasize the promotion of the individual development of the children and with our concept on teaching across classes, we create opportunities for learning together and from one another.

Among other things, we specifically work on attaining these goals  through Study Times, Talent Times, Free Play  as well as the  Support and Challenge lessons.

At the  GSIS-Accra, our children acquire knowledge, aptitudes, skills, experiences, abilities, and attitudes aimed at promoting the individual development of their personality.

With our Support Concept which is based on inclusion, the school won a special award  in  January 2015 during  the  ‚DAS – learning and living together‘  competition under the auspices of the vice president of the German Bundestag, Ulla Schmidt.
