Part of a Rich Educational Tradition
The German Language School, as it is known today, was founded in 1929 as a continuation of the Zion Church scholastic tradition. The school received a favorable response and enrollment in the thirties reached over 200 students. The first principal, Miss Elsa Conradi, achieved world recognition with her delightful textbook which was used not only in the German Language School but also in German schools in many other countries.

Throughout the years, there has never been a lack of competent and high-quality teachers. In the late 1950's, the German Language School started a class for adults. Due to the high level of interest among adults, at present the adults in the school outnumber the children.
