German students

German students seeking admission to grades 7 through 12 must demonstrate English-language proficiency equivalent to their prospective German classmates at their grade level at JFKS. Proficiency is determined by an English test which includes a written essay.

Students applying for Grade 11 usually have spent a year in a high school in the United States. As the number of places is limited, admission is very competitive.
