The teaching at the German School of Kosova is based on the local curriculum, supplemented with best practices from the German and American curricula. The curriculum is designed with a strong correlation between different subjects to provide the best learning experience possible. This enables a better understanding of concepts, enjoyable learning, easy retention of knowledge, and the integration of knowledge with everyday life.
Trilingualism is a distinguishing feature of the German School of Kosova. Instruction is conducted in the Albanian language, but English and German are taught from the first grade by subject teachers. To acquire and reinforce the knowledge of different languages, students have the opportunity to engage in enjoyable activities during extracurricular time.

  • Enhanced communication skills: Speaking multiple languages can help individuals communicate with a wider range of people and understand cultural nuances that may not be apparent through translation.

  • Delayed onset of age-related cognitive decline: Speaking multiple languages can delay the onset of age-related cognitive decline, helping individuals maintain their cognitive abilities well into old age.
Classes 1-5 will have their class teachers and teacher assistants, while subjects such as foreign languages, physical education, music, and art will be taught by subject teachers.
We live in the digital age, and our students are digital natives. Therefore, Information Technology (IT) will also be taught starting from the first grade.
There are several reasons why information technology is important in primary schools:
  • Digital literacy: Information technology helps primary school students to become digitally literate, able to access, analyze, evaluate, and communicate information using digital tools and technologies.
  • Future job skills: Information technology skills are increasingly in demand in the workforce. By teaching these skills to our students, they will be better prepared for future careers in technology.
  • Engaging learning experiences: Information technology makes learning more engaging and interactive. It helps students visualize complex concepts and engage in hands-on learning activities.
  • Improved communication: Information technology improves communication between students, teachers, and parents. It facilitates collaboration, feedback, and sharing of information for the benefit of our students.
  • Access to resources: Information technology provides access to a wealth of resources, including online databases, educational apps, and educational videos. This helps enhance learning and provide students with new opportunities to learn.

Each student will be provided with an iPad for learning purposes, while the classrooms will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
The day will begin with a physical/relaxation activity that aids in better focus during learning and a positive start to the day, followed by a group meeting.
Regular lessons with teachers and subject teachers will then take place.

After lunch, extracurricular activities and clubs are organized, along with the completion of homework assignments.
