Primary School

Developing: It is important to us that children learn from and with each other. For us, education means the holistic development of personal, social, professional and methodological competences. The elementary school is a place where children feel comfortable and can develop their potential. We encourage your child to develop step by step into a self-confident, independent personality. It should retain its curious view of the world.

The basis of our educational programme is the current educational plan of the state of Baden – Württemberg. In addition, we are part of the Association of German Schools Abroad.

As a German school with an international orientation, language diversity has naturally been an important part of our offer from the very beginning. We regularly offer extracurricular activities. These include experiential education activities, nature study tours, readings, visits to the theatre or museum as well as joint projects with the surrounding schools.



At DISDH, we place particular emphasis on supporting our pupils. That is why each grade receives two hours of remedial teaching per week. Any difficulties that arise are analysed as quickly as possible, and with the help of an individually compiled support plan, gaps can be quickly worked through. Should more intensive support be necessary, we will be happy to advise you. We help, for example, with individual support measures such as private DaF (German as a foreign language) lessons. Furthermore, we also support your child with dyslexia and psychomotor skills. Contact us – we are happy to help!



The language of instruction is German. In addition, two lessons in English and Dutch per week are included in the primary school timetable. We offer additional German lessons by specially trained teachers in small groups for children whose mother tongue is not German. In this way, the children make great progress quickly.


School hours:

Monday – Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 1.10 p.m.

All-day care::

Monday – Friday from 7.45 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. or 6.00 p.m.


Afternoon care

We start the afternoon with a shared hot meal from the canteen, and later in the afternoon the children get another snack. After lunch, the children do their homework under pedagogical supervision.
Relaxation and free activities are the focus of our programme. During free play time, the children are allowed to decide for themselves whether they would prefer to build, paint, read or play outside. Joint excursions to the beach and forest as well as to various museums are regularly on the programme.
The supervised afternoon programme for our primary school children takes place every day until either 3.30 pm or 6 pm.

Working Groups (AGs)

DISDH working groups stand for fun, games, languages, music, sports and lots of good humour. This is exactly what we want our pupils to enjoy, lesson after lesson, in the DISDH working groups.

Our programme offers something for everyone and is full of variety. With an age-appropriate offer and pedagogical concepts, we cordially invite you to join us.

Holiday Programme

There is no such thing as boredom during the holidays. During the holidays in February, May, summer and autumn we offer a holiday programme with lots of varieties for our pupils. You can register your child for this when he or she attends our kindergarten or primary school. Our holiday programme is dedicated to a different theme each time, for which we undertake many exciting activities. These include sports, cooking, artistic activities, games and fun. We discover our environment and surroundings on trips and excursions, for example to the museum, the beach or the forest.
