The German School of Fremont is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1963. At that time, an immigrant couple from Germany began teaching the German language to a class of eight students. They understood what a gift language is to communication, exploration, and understanding other cultures. Alfred and Anna Marie Kaufmann appreciated how language can be a link to the past and to the future. They also realized that a large part of their past and much of the quality of their future would be lost if they didn’t pass on the gift of language to their children.
Over the years the school has gone through many changes, constantly striving to stay current and always endeavoring to provide relevant language instruction and have some fun at the same time. The atmosphere and the spirit of the German School of Fremont remain the same as in its early days: to have a sense of community and to provide students with a better understanding of the customs, the history, and the culture of the German speaking countries.
Nowadays the mission of the German School of Fremont is to teach the German language to interested students through a variety of instructional methods. We are located at the easy-to-reach Mission Blvd. in Fremont. Children and adult classes are offered to all ages and levels on Saturday mornings between 09:30 am to12:00 pm. We are happy to welcome new members at the start of our fall semester (September-January) or spring semester (January-May).
