Our International School


Did you know that 43% of the families at our school do not speak German at home? This means that these students only learn and speak German at our school. Nevertheless, they do very well and mostly pass the DSD I and DSD II exams. These Exams are written by Grade 9 and Grade 11 pupils respectively to gain varsity acceptance in Germany. Really proof that the Deutsche Schule Durban opens the door to Germany and the world for South African children.

The exact percentages are as follows:

Children where both parents (or legal guardians) speak German is 26%. Family houses where only one parent / legal guardian speaks German is 31% and, as mentioned above, 43% of DSD families do not speak German at home.

Help us continue to offer these opportunities to our children. Donate under the following link and open the door to Germany and the world for a child:
