"There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of them is roots, the other wings."Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The German Embassy School Tehran seeks to nurture its students so that they grow the roots for a lasting foundation of essential academic and life skills. We aim to foster a culture of lifelong enquiry, discussion and learning that will help develop active members of a global community who will promote world peace and international-mindedness. In the supportive and safe environment of the German Embassy School Tehran, students participate in a range of academic and extra-curricular programs which are challenging and confidence building. Rigorous assessment is integral to our program and ensures its effective implementation. In this international and inclusive community of dedicated educators and students that is the German Embassy School Tehran our students leave with a sense of greater understanding and tolerance of multi-cultural issues to take their place more confidently in this ever changing world.
