DSK German International School Cape Town / Deutsche Internationale Schule Kapstadt


The DSK (German International School) is a bilingual German school in Cape Town, South Africa, where we welcome learners and families from more than 25 nations to our international school community. A multinational and multicultural character distinguishes our school life. We foster understanding, mutual respect and open-mindedness. Intercultural learning is an important aspect of our learners’ development, and we embrace this diversity as we constantly learn with and from each other.

A unique characteristic of the DSK is that our learners graduate with one of two double qualifications. Both school leaving options can open doors to an international career.

Our learners obtain either:

  • IEB –NSC (National Senior Certificate examined by the Independent Examination Board) and the German Language Diploma at level B2/C1 or
  • Combined Qualification with the IEB-NSC and the German International Abitur

The DSK is a full-day school with aftercare facilities and a comprehensive range of extramural activities focusing on sectors of music, art, the environment and sport, to name just a few. We have modern facilities, while the teaching and learning methods are diverse and in line with current teaching research.
