Admission information & School fees

The German School in Hurghada is an international school of encounter.

Native German speaking children as well as children of all other nationalities are welcome at our school. For kindergarten and the first year of preschool, German language skills are not required; for subsequent grades, admission for non-native German speaking children is decided on an individual basis.

How to register your child?
