The DSK- international, individual and inclusive

The DSK is a bilingual German school abroad with a proud history spanning over 130 years in a balanced harmony of tradition and innovation.
We presently welcome children and families from more than 25 nations to our international school community.
A stay at our boarding school is therefore not only a great opportunity to attend one of the most prestigious private schools in the Western Cape, but also to make friends with learners from all over the world and to experience Cape Town in all its diverse facets and cultures.
We understand our school as a place of mutual encounter. A friendly atmosphere, a good team spirit and to feel comfortable is as important to us as an excellent academic education and holistic development of each learner.
Keep life balanced with our extensive extra-mural programme after school, attractive leisure opportunities in and around Cape Town on weekends and exciting trips through South Africa during the holidays. For more details of our extra-mural programme, please click here.

The school year at the DSK starts each year in the middle of January and ends at the beginning of December. The year is divided into 4 terms with each term counting roughly 45 school days.
During the six-week summer holidays in December/January and the winter holidays in June/July, the boarding school is closed, which gives you the opportunity to visit your family or to go on a long trip with your parents or friends.
During the shorter holidays around Easter and in September we offer an interesting boarding school trip, if there is enough demand, or you may spend time with your friends and family- the choice is yours.
