- The Structure of Our Classes
The German School Hurghada is starting with the Nursery for children from 2 till 4 years, followed by the pre school for children aged from 4 years on. With the age of 6 years the Primary School is beginning. Dead line for the age is the 30th of September. After that the students will be arranged according to their past performance. The move up to the higher classes will be decided according to the regulation of the Thüringen ministry of education. In the Egyptian part there will be the national examination in addition after classes 3, 6 and 9.
The final exam after year 12 is the German IB which allows our students the access to most universities world wide.
The groups in the pre school are equipped with German and Egyptian specially trained staff. In a playing atmosphere the children will be prepared for school. The language of the pre school is mainly German. Children who do not speak German will learn it in these 2 years and will have an examination after KG 2. German children will get first words of the Arabic language, children who already speak the two languages can intensify their know-how. English is starting in primary school.
In primary school the teaching of classes 1 to 4 will be according to the regulations of the ministry of education of Thüringen. In all German subjects the language will be German. The other entire subjects which are regulated by the Egyptian ministry of education will be taught in Arabic.

- The Nursery
Our concept for the nursery is based on the newest cognitions of educational sciences.
The size of the groups with a maximum of 15 children makes it possible to give most individual care to each child.
- Pre School
The German School is aware that the basis of a good start is a solid pre school education and is
therefore investing lots of efforts. Under german supervision, the children are individually challenged,
encouraged and stimulated.
- School Meals
The DSH has been working successfully since the beginning with a full day concept with school lessons daily from 09:00 a.m. till 04:15 p.m. Healthy food has an extensive influence on the mental and physical development of children. We are aware of this high responsibility and therefore we arrange the menu of
the school in line with the recommendations for school meals of the DGE (German Society for Nutrition).
