SAT Preparation & Exam

Once a year, usually in the September to November timeframe, the German School offers a PSAT/SAT preparation course for students of grades 9-12.

The PSAT test is offered every October at the DSW.

The SAT takes place several times a year. Students register for it at www.collegeboard.org and choose a testing location that is most convenient to them.

Please contact the counselor of the upper school at counselor@dswash.org to sign up.


The German International School Washington D.C. stays in touch with its alumni around the globe and is very proud of their achievements.
